St Joseph's School students learned about the wonders of water, by splashing and sliding through SA Water’s interactive Slippery Stuff.

Slippery Stuff was an one-hour educational show designed for students in grades three to seven.

The show takes science directly into classrooms to teach students about the physical, chemical and biological processes used to treat drinking water and sewage.

SA Water community relations manager Phil Jones said the show was part of the corporation’s commitment to teaching children about important water issues.

“Slippery Stuff is a fun show that lets students and teachers get their hands wet and literally, hose-down myths about water,” he said.

“The kids learn how the water cycle is managed, and the way science is applied in a real-life scenario to make sure South Australians can enjoy a safe, reliable and secure water supply.”

The hands-on session holds water for teachers too, aligning with South Australia’s primary school science curriculum.
