Week Of Our Water

From 10 to 25 October 2020 it is the Week of Ons Water in which educational and surprising water activities are organized throughout the country.

Discoverstation013 also contributes to this by making children more aware about water, hydropower and water and the environment. For example, there are workshops on filtering water and making water wheels. And experiments with water: if you melt ice, does the water level rise? And what happens if you open the locks outside in the WaterPlayground?

Can water flow upwards? This summer, Discoverstation013 has set up a special WaterPlayground in the Spoorzone. A miniature representation of a water wheel and locks. It's unique how children discover for themselves how much force you need to move water upwards. And how you can influence the flow of water. The Water Playground will be officially opened on October 24 by Councilor Mario Jacobs, but the children can already enjoy it.
