Water Education Assemblies
The Soquel Creek Water District sponsors water education assemblies for schools in our service area (Soquel, Capitola, Aptos, and La Selva Beach). Each school, Kindergarten to 6th grade can choose up to 3 free consecutive shows per school year. Assembly shows present lessons about water conservation, pollution prevention, watersheds, and the hydrologic cycle through their unique, crowd-pleasing stage shows.
2021-22 School Year
EarthCapades is the featured performance group for the 2021-22 school year!
These talented groups perform all over the country and their shows book up quickly, so request your show date as soon as possible. The District rotates performers every year.
Banana Slug String Band
The Banana Slug String Band performs the We All Live Downstream show that focuses on groundwater awareness, water use, and conservation practices in all activities. The local "slugs" have been performing environmental songs worldwide for 30 years! The watershed songs will inspire and teach students small-step actions they can do (i.e. reducing water use by shorter showers, no running water for tooth brushing) while we make sure students have lots of fun while learning about water and watersheds! Our local Slugs bring water awareness through costumes, audience participation, and humor.
Rock Steady Juggling
The Rock Steady Juggling group presents "Go With the Flow!". This interactive and entertaining multi-media assembly uses juggling, comedy, and magic to teach students about where drinking water comes from and ways to conserve water during the drought.
The EarthCapades group presents the H2O show. It's "environmental vaudeville" with humor, juggling, unicycle riding, magic, and stilt-walking all backed with a colorful slide show about water. Students learn about water science, ecology, and practical steps students can take to conserve Planet Earth's most precious natural resource, water! Visit the EarthCapades website for further show details.
