Designers include fountains in parks to entertain and comfort people. They keep people out of the ponds and streams that belong to fish and fowl.

The Museum's Water Lab honors that purpose. It delivers clean water. Recycles it carefully. And finally pumps it out to thirsty flowers and trees.

A hundred plugs and valves and small repairs make it ready for a new summer. This small workshop will teach the basic plumbing of the Water Lab and have water flowing by the end of the day.

Each helper will construct a bathtub fountain that will let you discover a Fandex of ways to sculpt the size and shape of squirts and sprays.

Lead Instructor: Wm Brown
Special Thanks: Remedy for wonderful fountain parts.
