Water festivals are designed to help fourth & fifth-grade students learn about the importance of water and how it is used in their daily lives. The objective of a water festival is to provide students with activities to help them understand water resource related issues. 
The 2008 Rouge River Water Festival at Cranbrook Institute of Science will take place on September 16-19 and will accommodate up to 3,000 students. The water festival is a half-day educational experience for students from Rouge River Watershed community schools in Oakland County. Students will learn about the central role water and the Rouge River play within their region. Cranbrook Institute of Science in Bloomfield Hills, situated on three sub-branches of the Rouge River, offers an outstanding learning environment. 

Each class will attend a series of outdoor and indoor presentations.  Presentations will be 30 minutes and will be designed, as much as possible, to be interactive, hands-on learning experiences. All presentations and exhibits relate to water, its uses, and critical importance to us and our environment.
