"When I appointed the Clean & Green Task Force, in 2005, I asked them the create a report on how to become a clean, green, more sustainable city. The result of excellent work by the Task Force was these simple guidelines: Save Water, Keep it Clean, Make it Solar, Make it Shady, Clean the Air, Save Fuel, Make it Smart, and Build Green."
Teachers can request a free classroom presentation in their 4th or 5th grade classroom.
Let Riverside Public Utilities support your science curriculum! Fourth and Fifth grade teachers, if your classroom is in our utilities service area we would love to bring our standards-based, free mobile science lab to your students. Check our calendar below for availability and click on the blue dates to reserve your visit. If you have an older web browser the calendar may have trouble responding to you. You can also email us for your appointment any time.
We tailor each visit to the individual needs of each classroom but our usual program involves an introductory 30 minute presentation that covers basic concepts of electricity (4th grade) or water: source to tap (5th grade). Then with the assistance of the classroom teacher students participate in an engaging 60 minute, hands on science lab, pre-selected by the teacher. All science labs are designed to reinforce concepts of the lesson, encourage science and engineering literacy, and develop student’s observation experimentation skills. At the end of our presentation we will leave our science loan kit for your students to use and explore for two weeks.
