Sludge Eating Microbes – How Cool is That?

Classroom Presentation Opportunity

The Victor Valley Wastewater Reclamation Authority (VVWRA) is offering classroom presentations that describe the wastewater treatment process, how recycled water will be used in the community and the importance that microbes play in cleaning the wastewater. The presentation, which lasts about 30 minutes, will be offered to 4th, 5th and 6th grade classes.

During the presentation students will see an action-packed video showing real microscopic bugs doing what they do best – digesting bacteria and other wastes during the wastewater treatment process. After the presentation, the interactive discussion with students includes visual props guaranteed to stimulate lots of questions and giggles. Each student will receive a goody bag filled with fun and educational reminders of the lesson they learned in the presentation. This presentation helps meet science content standards.
