Community Programs

Our hands-on inquiry-based programs are available to community partners, community-focused organizations, and scouting groups. Through our community programs, we strive to provide comprehensive access for underserved populations.  Please reach out to us to discuss the possibility of your organization being a good fit for on-going, quarterly programs.

Splash! Water Engineering

Each year, in the fall, come spend a day at our lighthouse exploring how we can re-imagine our life with water!

Our daytime Girl Scout visitors will design, build, and test ways to live with water. Activities include designing an aquifer, moving water with ancient technology, and various engineering challenges.

Our overnight campers will explore ways to move and use urban water, and design a water-friendly New Orleans of the future!

Look for registration information in August!
