Topeka kids ‘Make A Splash’

TOPEKA (KSNT) – Fourth graders across Topeka spent the day learning about water.

It was all part of the annual ‘Make A Splash’ Topeka Water Festival.

1,200 fourth graders attended. It was put on by the Kansas Association for Conservation and Environmental Education and the Kansas Department of Health.

There were more than 20 learning stations.

“Fourth graders learning about the importance of water. What they can do to be good stewards of water. What they can do to protect water and conserve water. And learning about where their water comes from,” event director Laura Downey said.

Hundreds of water festivals, like Topeka’s event, take place across the country.

This is Topeka’s 16th year hosting the event.
