Created by the Groundwater Foundation, the Awesome Aquifer Kit is a fun, hands-on way to “see” groundwater and learn how it works! The Gallatin Conservation District has this kit available for rental to all educators within Gallatin County OR speak with Gallatin Conservation District staff to have a staff member conduct the demonstration to your class or at your event.
The Awesome Aquifer Kit has everything you need to build an aquifer model. Instructions and activity supplies are included to walk you through learning all about groundwater. The kit is great for use in classrooms, at community events, festivals or fairs, or any other educational setting. Both youth and adults love the hands-on nature of the activities!
Topics included in the kit:
- Groundwater and Surface Water
