Sewer Science

The Sewer Science program is a five day wastewater treatment lab for high school students. Developed with the aid of a science teacher, this hands-on lab lets students make, treat, and test wastewater. Developed specifically to meet the needs of grades 9-12, the curriculum integrates chemistry, physics, and microbiology. Almost all the materials required for running the lab – including the necessary tanks, pumps, testing kits, and perishable materials – are provided by Central San.

Delta Discovery Program

Classroom science lessons come alive for fifth graders on the RV Robert G. Brownlee, a 90-foot-long research vessel that provides a safe and stable floating laboratory for students. The ship is owned and operated by the Marine Science Institute of Redwood City. Central San co-sponsors a three-and-a-half hour excursion on the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta where students learn about the source of their drinking water and the importance of pollution prevention.
