The Groundwater Foundation launches groundwater awareness trivia app PDF Print E-mail

The Groundwater Foundation is launching “Water1der”, a mobile groundwater awareness trivia game app, developed by SectorNow’s CleanEarthApps division, which is available free of charge from the Apple app store.
The game is designed to educate everyone about our most precious resource–water.
Through a fun, educational format, the game challenges players in their knowledge of groundwater basics, pollution prevention, conservation, irrigation, the water cycle, aquifers, recycling, watersheds, water use and wells.
Players “spin” a wheel to choose a category and play their way through a variety of questions and activities and then see their final score.

“With our society turning so mobile, we thought this was a great opportunity to get groundwater awareness into the hands of everyone,” said Groundwater Foundation President Jane Griffin.
“Even though it is in a game format, it’s a great educational tool for everyone and fits with the Foundation’s mission to educate and inspire to ensure clean, sustainable groundwater for future generations.”
“A core component of our strategic plan is to partner with organizations who lead the movement to improve environmental quality,” said SectorNow CEO Evelyn Bartlett.
“The Groundwater Foundation’s passion, knowledge and legacy in protecting water made them an attractive partner. Water1der will be an important tool teachers and advocates can use to teach the importance of water stewardship.”
Every segment of the community can benefit by downloading and playing Water1der:
• Teachers can use it as a learning tool in their classroom by having their students choose a category and compete against other students
• Community and business leaders can learn some facts and figures to help them in educating their communities
• Parents can use it as part of a family night to help everyone learn about this precious resource
• Kids will find it fun, interactive and easy to use and they will gain a knowledge of water.
