Trout Unlimited Canada’s Water Edu-Kit program explores the science of water, enabling youth to improve their water literacy while enriching their understanding and experience in water science. The self-delivery program package has a complete set of tools to help youth understand and monitor the health of their local waterbodies and the challenges with water and conservation. Each kit focuses on learning, testing and recording water quality data on a field trip to a local river or stream. The Edu-Kits provide many stewardship opportunities that can motivate youth to become active voices for healthy water environments.
The kits connect with the national school curriculum for Grades 7-9 and links to community group environmental badges. We encourage educators and leaders to keep all of the materials with the kit, so that they may be passed along to other interested classes and groups to be reused. Refills of chemical analysis tablets can be ordered through VWR Canada, 1-800-932-5000.
Youth will be given organizational links to action projects, enabling them to create solutions for water issues in their own communities. Each Water Edu-Kit includes:
- Supplies for a group of 25-30 participants that can be used many times
- Comprehensive Teacher’s Guide
- Student Field and Safety Sheets
- Macroinvertebrate Analysis Guide
- Biological Aquatic Analysis Gear
- Riparian Assessment Guide
- ‘LaMotte’ Aquatic Chemical Analysis Kit
