Water, Water, Everywhere: All biological organisms require water for survival, but we tend to take it for granted. Should we be worried? In truth, there is a lot of water on earth: enough to cover about 75% of the earth’s surface! So what’s the big deal? One big issue is the availability of that water and its suitability for drinking. Only about 2.5% of earth’s water is freshwater, and the majority of that fraction is locked up in the form of ice and snow, which leaves a very small amount of water that is available and suitable for human consumption. Environmental engineers work to ensure that we have enough water to meet our needs and that it is safe for drinking and recreation. Water, water, everywhere introduces students to environmental engineering, issues of water quantity and quality, on-site tours of water industry, and hands-on laboratory experiments. Due to the generosity of the Pentair Foundation we will be offering this program at a reduced rate.

About the K-12 Engineering Academies at Marquette University
The Office of Enrollment Management and Outreach seeks to enhance the mission of Marquette University and the College of Engineering by developing and preparing future Marquette engineers to be critical thinkers, problem solvers, and leaders that will contribute to a global society.
The Engineering Academies offer students of all ages a wide variety of interesting and challenging programs. Our courses challenge our youth to become critical-thinking problem solvers, appreciate STEM, and explore the engineering design process. Since 2006, the Outreach team develops and offers unique opportunities for students to have fun while solving real-world engineering problems.
