Description of Distance Learning Programs

Below are the current distance learning educational outreach programs that WSSC Water offers for free to schools, scouts and youth groups in our service area. All distance learning resources include options for a virtual live interaction with a WSSC Water staff member or pre-recorded resources that teachers can integrate into their own lesson. We also have resources for hands-on activities students can do at home as well as materials that can be printed. To learn more about the available resources and gain access to them, please complete this form - and one of our outreach educators will contact you to discuss your needs. 

*NOTE: At this time, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are not offering any in-person programming or field trips. 

Elementary and Middle School

Watershed Defenders 

Through videos and hands-on activities students begin to understand what a watershed is and why it is important to protect the land surrounding various bodies of water. 

Water Works 

Students learn how water moves through the built environment and think about the systems in place to get water from its source to their homes. They also learn how that water is treated so it is safe to return to rivers and streams. Age-appropriate engineering design activity guides are available. 

High School 

A Century of Serving the Community 

Ever wonder what life was like in Prince George’s and Montgomery counties 100 years ago? This presentation helps students explore that topic along with how national events and policies can affect local development. This presentation not only provides students a better understanding of the role a water utility plays in protecting public health, but also how it can serve as a catalyst for growth and development.
