Greetings, friends of all shapes and sizes. Are you ready for sloshing and being surpris-ed? Sharon will show you in three steps or two, just what the city does with your ____! Learning is fun, and it’s just what we do at the Open Space Visitor Center; it’s true.
First we’ll make wastewater with playdoh and plastic, and then we’ll clean it with a process fantastic! Water, Trash, Sludge, we’ll divide it, and then, Sharon will reveal some remarkable magic. You’ll soon be the expert on water so blue, ‘cause you’ll know who cleans number one and so two!
Sharon Sivinski, Education Coordinator at the Albuquerque Bernalillo County Water Utility Authority, will lead this workshop in which participants will make wastewater using materials like playdoh, plastic, and dirt. After separating the wastewater into categories (Water, Trash, Sludge), they will learn what the authority does with each category. The workshop includes show of photos and videos of microorganisms that clean our wastewater.
This simulation relates to the PARCH art exhibit on display in the Visitor Center Gallery. PARCH features the artwork of seven local artists who express their awe of and concern for water in the desert through fabric, paint, and clay. Before or after the workshop, feel free to peruse PARCH and further develop your own sense of place near the river.
