Milwaukee high school students will have the opportunity to learn about the challenges facing the Great Lakes and available career opportunities in the freshwater field during an innovative half-day program at Discovery World tomorrow, Tuesday, November 27, 2012 from 9 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Called "Building the Water Generation," the program will educate students about the fragility and power of the Great Lakes and inspire them to become engaged in protecting our freshwater system. Students will hear from guest speakers Roz Rouse of Milwaukee Water Works, Bill Grafton of MMSD and State Senator Lena Taylor.

Students will also rotate among four different learning stations throughout the museum that include:

· Digital Theater Captain Tiffany J. Krihwan of the S/V Denis Sullivan will discuss how she turned her hobby of sailing into a life-long career and career options available in the water field.

· Reiman Aquarium – Students will explore invasive species and the risks they pose to the Great Lakes.

· MillerCoors THIRST Lab – Students will experience a hands-on workshop centered on water purification solutions to clean textile industry wastewater in developing countries.

· Pilot House – Students will learn about what it takes to manufacture tea in Milwaukee and around the water from a master tea maker from Rishi Tea.

The "Building the Water Generation" program is made possible by a $20,000 AT&T Wisconsin Innovation & Investment Award.
