Field Trip to Alabama Power Environmental Center Water Course

Our Enrichment students really enjoyed the trip to visit Alabama Power Water Course. This was in conjunction with a study on the severe drought affecting Alabama at this time. The trip to the Water Course was an interactive, hands-on exhibit where students learned many important aspects of water: water conservation, hydroelectricity, etc. Students took a simulated helicopter ride over Alabama’s waterways and learned features of the waterways; they took a simulated tour of Mitchell Dam to view the hydroelectric facility and tested their knowledge of water facts in a fun game show called “Water Whys”.
