Students can find out more about where your water comes from and what happens to your poo when you flush the loo!
Our Thames Water speaker programme offers you the opportunity to book a school visit with a Thames Water speaker who can talk to your students about what Thames Water do, and how they do it.
The sessions involve a variety of hands-on and interactive resources to use as part of their presentation. The talks work in both assemblies and small classrooms. Students will learn about the essential services Thames Water provide, where your water comes from, and what happens to your poo when you flush the loo!
Minimum of 10 participants, maximum of 250 participants.
