Family H2O Science Labs

If you like helping kids and their parents learn about caring for our planet, please consider volunteering at one of our upcoming Family H20 Science Labs!

We will have several stations, and each volunteer will be in charge of guiding the activities at one station. Parents with children will travel from station to station throughout the event. The entire event is exploration-focused, relaxed, and fun for families. Here is a list of the possible stations we’ll have, depending on the number of volunteers: Learn about the water cycle, groundwater flow, and where we get our water here in Phoenix. Each station has materials for exploration, demonstration, or arts and crafts for families to do together.

Please contact Christian or Canyon at conservation@phoenix.govor 602-534-3950 if you are interested in volunteering at any of the events!
