Utah Waters Van
THE UTAH WATERS VAN
The Utah Waters Van is an educational outreach program offered by The Living Planet Aquarium to fourth grade students throughout Utah. The content of our presentations is specifically designed to coordinate with the Utah Sate Office of Education’s Science Core Curriculum. Students are encouraged to supply information and assist the presenters during our interactive presentation.
