Online Educational Video Library Open
The library is open! The new online video library that is, and it is filled with “Little Lessons” all about water and wastewater. Port St. Lucie Utility Systems (PSLUS) understands the limitations schools are faced with this year, and has produced an online video series breaking down what would have been in-person classroom presentations, into short videos covering a variety of topics.
The videos provide a total of one and half hours of content that align with several of the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards (NGSSS) Science Benchmarks for elementary-aged children. There are 14 Little Lessons and each one focuses on a water or sewer-related topic, which include the following:
•Why is Water So Special? •What is the Water Cycle? •How Can I Become a Water Saver Superhero? •How Can I Prevent Clogs? •How Do Microorganisms Help Treat Wastewater?
There is a tremendous amount of online content available about these topics, however the PSLUS Little Lessons are specific to the water and wastewater operations of Port St. Lucie and St. Lucie County.
The videos use a variety of easy-to-understand explanations, plus visuals, hands-on activities and crafts to help the viewer relate to every topic. Viewers are encouraged to provide feedback and engage with presenter, Jenny Tomes, Utility Marketing Coordinator, to share ideas, ask questions and chat about the things they learned from each lesson.
This unique online video library is available to teachers, students and homeschool groups alike, as well as anyone wanting to know more about Port St. Lucie’s water and wastewater operations.
