STEAM Superheroes_2_1STEAM Superheroes

In July, NEW Water partnered with the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Green Bay for the 7th annual STEAM Superheroes Camp. Staff once again helmed superhero roles Commander CleanWater and Watershed Warrior, to help children defeat evil villain water polluters – Phosphorus Phury, Sinister Sediment, and Unflushables, also played by staff. In its 7th year, the camp aims to teach kids important STEAM (science, technology, engineering, [communication] arts, and math) skills needed for future careers, including at NEW Water, and to teach them how to protect our most important resource, water. “You can protect water by not flushing stuff down the toilet that doesn't belong," said a 10-year-old camper, "only toilet paper, pee, and poop belong down the toilet."
