STEAM Superheroes_4POW! WHAM! BAM!

For the 8th year of the STEAM Superheroes Camp, NEW Water, the brand of the Green Bay Metropolitan Sewerage District, teamed up with the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Green Bay (BGCGB) and the Einstein Project to inspire area youth to care about our most valuable resource, water with interactive, educational, and hands-on activities.

STEAM Superheroes_1Fourteen area youth participated in this year's STEAM Superheroes Camp and have earned their “Defenders of the Bay” certificates, by learning about what NOT to put down the toilet, how to inspect microorganisms under a microscope, and simulate how the earth is a natural filter by building filters. The camp aims to facilitate learning the important skills in Science, Technology, Engineering, (Communication) Arts, and Mathematics to help protect our precious water resources and become part of the NEW Water STEAM Superheroes Team.

NEW Water staff again played the roles of the STEAM Superheroes “Commander CleanWater” and “Watershed Warrior” as they explained the importance of protecting our most valuable resource, water, and the connection between the Fox River, the Bay of Green Bay, Lake Michigan, and the Great Lakes. The STEAM Superheroes explained how “evil villains,” who were also played by NEW Water staff, “Phosphorus Phury,” “Sinister Sediment,” and the “Unflushables,” are threating our area waterways and what they can do to defeat them.

There is an identified community need for more outreach opportunities in STEAM skills and for the jobs of the future, including working at NEW Water. The STEAM Superheroes Camp gives a shout out to cool careers that need STEAM skills that kids might not think about.
