How do water catchments work?
On the 27th of October 2016, a group of Coffey staff organised and ran a STEM activity at a local primary school in Sydney’s North. The 30 year six students learnt about water catchments and water pollution through two hands-on experiments.
The students enthusiastically drew paper water catchments and communities, and “rained” on their land with water sprays. They observed what happened to the water and the land they had drawn.
This initiative is part of Tetra Tech’s 50th Anniversary STEM Campaign, an ongoing programme committed to leading with science and enhancing the communities where we work. In 2016, Tetra Tech offices – including Coffey – around the world are completing at least 50 STEM events to help shape the next generation of engineers and scientists.
