Water By Design

EarthEcho Expedition: Water By Design is an exploration of the diverse engineering solutions California's resource managers are implementing in response to the recent 7-year drought. Explore the connection between the Sierra snowpack and the people of Los Angeles. Understand how NASA's satellite technology is used to help water resource managers on Earth. Investigate how seawater and water deep underground play a role in satisfying this thirsty urban region. Discover solutions and actions you can take in your own home or community to conserve water resources.

All EarthEcho Expedition: Water by Design resources are developed collaboratively with and vetted by the 26 participating educators who currently serve as EarthEcho Expedition Fellows. These materials have truly been developed by teachers for teachers to support young people as they develop the skills to take action in their own community around drought and water conservation.

“EarthEcho Expeditions leverages the thrill of adventure to inspire a new generation of environmental champions. We are excited to partner with the Northrop Grumman Foundation on this year’s timely Expedition examining innovative solutions to quench the water demands of thirsty urban landscapes,” said Philippe Cousteau, Jr., founder of EarthEcho International.
