Discovery World would like to wish all of the FIRST Lego League teams good luck this season as they compete in Hydro Dynamics. As you begin to research your projects, please keep in mind the many resources that are available right here in Milwaukee!
Located on the shores of Lake Michigan, it’s no secret that fresh water is the key to Milwaukee’s past, present, and future. From its beginning as a booming port to our future as a global hub for fresh water, the world’s most valuable resource will always play a huge role in our community’s identity, educational offerings, and workforce opportunities. That’s why we were so excited to see this year’s theme of Hydro Dynamics.
Did you know Discovery World offers several freshwater science workshops? Our museum also features a plethora of educational exhibits around this topic including the Great Lakes Future, City of Freshwater, and the Liquid House. Experience our exhibits firsthand to learn how turn Lake Michigan into our drinking water, the impact of water usage at home and work, how to keep Lake Michigan sustainable, and visit one of the largest interactive models of the Great Lakes in the world!
But Discovery World is only one aspect of the resources available to you in our community. Here are a few others that we highly recommend learning more about:
- UWM School of Freshwater Sciences
- Global Water Center
- Water Council
- Milwaukee Metropolitan Sanitary District
If your team is interested in scheduling a visit to Discovery World, please contact Connor McElveen, our School Experiences Coordinator, at 414.765.8779 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
