  • The Awesome Aquifer Kit is a fun, hands-on way to get students to "see" groundwater. The kit includes lessons to build a groundwater model and learn about groundwater terminology, groundwater's role in the hydrologic cycle, the physical makeup of an aquifer, groundwater contamination, and more.

  • Purchase your own kit from The Groundwater Foundation's online catalog.

  • This step-by-step visual guide will walk you through model building basics.

  • The Teaching About Protecting the Source, or TAPS, Manual has extension activities designed to show how human impacts can affect groundwater. This manual includes lessons on concepts such as sinkholes, improperly abandoned wells, and over-application of fertilizer, for example, as well as tools for evaluation and alignment to the Next Generation Science Standards.

  • This manual provides instructions for proper care and maintenance to make sure your Awesome Aquifer Kit continues to work for you over and over again.
