the Water Heroes Program is funded through the Water Resources Research Institute (WRRI) at the University of the Virgin Islands. Through this amazing program, students in grades 3-12 are able to learn about water science topics such as water conservation, water quality testing, and water filtration. Employing the use of best practices in STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Arts Mathematics) education ensure students are presented with accurate, scientific information in an approach that prioritizes student engagement.  Take a look below at some of the experiences provided to students and educators through the Water Heroes Program.
