Workshops

Not sure if a workshop is right for you?

Contact us to learn more about how we run our workshops!

Want to get testing but don’t know where to start? Or maybe you’re planning a water science unit for your class and want a special activity to give them a hands on conservation experience.

Either way, an educational workshop with Water Rangers will provide you with knowledge and skills to kickstart your water testing journey! Our workshops are a great fit for students from Grades 5-12, environment clubs, youth groups, or homeschool circles, and are equally as effective online or in person. Pick the excursion that fits your classroom best and contact us!


Outdoor excursion

  • Participants will learn:
    • How they’re helping protect water by water testing
    • How to test for: conductivity, pH, alkalinity, hardness, water and air temperature, dissolved oxygen, and clarity
    • What open data is and why it’s important
  • Testkits and materials provided during the excursion!
  • We can include links to specific curriculum points
  • Outdoor, socially-distanced, COVID-safe education opportunity

Cost:

$100 for groups of 1-10 students

$200 for groups of 11-20

$300 for groups of 21-30

I went to the Toronto Islands Public school and did some water sampling with three Water Ranger kits with 26 first graders along with several parents and their teacher Biz Arends. This was very exciting for everyone, and the kids were able to learn about the waters right outside their school. The Kits were a great hit, and all the instruments and testing devices were easy to grasp by these young children. The kit was also passed to other grades to see if there were opportunities for old classes to plan for testing the water in warmer weather and doing some scientific studies.
