Join the WaterInsights team for an interactive workshop on environmental awareness and citizen science. In this session, we will begin by watching a short film from the Peabody Award-winning documentary Inventing Tomorrow. Sahithi Pingali – one of the stars of the movie – will facilitate a brainstorm about local environmental issues and possible solutions. We will reflect on the process of science, and the value of community-driven action. At the end of the session, everyone will receive a WaterInsights testing kit and start engaging in citizen science in their community!
