Wyland Mobile Learning Center at ICRS

The Wyland Mobile Learning Center is visiting Palm Beach Gardens, plan to join us there or visit the Wyland MLC at these locations:

The Mobile Center is part of the Wyland Foundation and Wyland’s Clean Water Challenge, and educates the public in a fun, entertaining way with a 40-person movie theater, a running river, video microscopes, and a watershed exhibit with actual rainfall. As children enter the Wyland Mobile Learning Center, they are recruited to become “Clean Water Challenge Agents,” and begin their training and are put to task.  They are asked to solve mysterious disturbances in the health of the nation’s water habitats, with exhibits focusing on lake regions, river management estuaries and ocean runoff.  The participate in hands-on activities like bringing rain down over a polluted city to see the impact it has on a watershed, diverting a flowing river to learn about water management, and using a computer model to see changes in a lake region over 200 years.” (www.wylandfoundation.org).
