State Senator Lena Taylor poses with Milwaukee high school students who participated in Discovery World’s “Building the Water Generation” program sponsored by AT&T.
Discovery World and State Senator Lena Taylor teamed up with educators recently to teach Milwaukee high school students about the challenges facing the Great Lakes and available career opportunities in the freshwater field during an innovative program called “Building the Water Generation.”
The event gave 80 students from Bradley Tech High School and Divine Savior Holy Angels High School the opportunity to participate in a half-day freshwater program at Discovery World.
Students heard from speakers State Senator Lena Taylor, Roz Rouse of Milwaukee Water Works, and Bill Grafton of the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District. Students also engaged in hands-on activities designed to more firmly establish their connection to Lake Michigan and the Great Lakes through biology and water chemistry. During visits to four different learning stations throughout the museum, students learned about: the career options available in the water field and much more.
