The WET Science Center is a fun, hands-on place to learn all about water. It is a part of LOTT Clean Water Alliance, a nonprofit corporation providing wastewater management services for the urban areas of Lacey, Olympia, and Tumwater. It’s free to visit and features interactive exhibits, family-friendly Saturday programs, wastewater treatment plant tours, and educational programs.
There are a variety of games and activities for all ages. Try an optional scavenger hunt to navigate through the science center. Information includes:
- Water conservation.
- Wastewater treatment, including the role of bacteria in the nitrogen removal process.
- What not to flush or put down the drain.
- Production and use of Class A Reclaimed Water.
- Clean water careers.
Programs are designed for students 5th grade and older. Programs are typically two hours long, and feature a presentation, a tour of the wastewater treatment plant or green-designed building, and time to explore the science center. All presentations align with Next Generation Science Standards.
