Since the opening of the Fairmount Water Works, tens of thousands of teachers and students have visited and participated in our unique programs. We teach about the process of cleaning drinking water and protecting the health of our urban watersheds through science, technology, engineering, art & architecture and math (STEM). We have designed programs that are suitable for all grades and that meet both Pennsylvania and New Jersey educational standards.
