Questions from kids

Does your class have a question for us?

We love interacting with students throughout the ACT and Queanbeyan. If one of your students has a question for us feel free to make a quick recording and send it through*, we’ll be more than happy to answer! 

* Please make sure you have media permission from the parent/guardian of any students featured in your video. 

We want to know what topics really intrigue your students. We’ll use this information to continue building water literacy amongst our region’s youth.

Submitting a question is easy!
