Protect Your Groundwater Day is coming up on Tuesday, Sept. 11.
What are you and your community going to do to protect groundwater on that day
and every day?
Here are some ideas from the National Ground Water
And now that we have you thinking
about this most precious resource, The Groundwater Foundation will soon be
launching “Water1der”, a mobile groundwater awareness trivia game app,
developed by SectorNow, which will be available free of charge from the Apple
Through a fun educational game,
players test their knowledge about groundwater, pollution prevention,
conservation, irrigation, the water cycle, aquifers, recycling, water sheds,
water use and wells. Players will “spin” a wheel on the app to determine the
topic of the question. The formats vary from traditional ones, such as multiple
choice, word scramble, matching and true/false to formats such as drag and
drop, where players can move words to areas to label parts of the aquifer;
moving, where players can select an item to be placed into the correct area;
scrolling, where players can click their finger on the right answer as it moves
across the screen; and timer, where players will touch the screen to stop a timer at the right number.
