We partner with a variety of grade levels in our Long Beach Unified schools to educate the next generation about sustainability. Long Beach Water, in partnership with Long Beach Energy Resources and Long Beach Recycles, launched an environmental education program for K-8 students. The program supports students and their families by bringing energetic, science-based performances into local schools free of charge. Pre-recorded, theatrical videos provide lessons on water efficiency, natural gas efficiency and safety, and waste reduction throughout the Long Beach area, consistent with the City’s climate change action and adaptation initiatives to create a more sustainable, resilient and climate-prepared community.

Solar Cup is a Metropolitan Water District of Southern California high school education program. Teams of students throughout Southern California build and race solar-powered boats. The seven-month program culminates in a three-day competition at Lake Skinner, in Temecula Valley. Through the program, students learn about conservation of natural resources, electrical and mechanical engineering, problem solving and much more.
Long Beach Water is proud to support our local, high school teams. Please contact our Public Affairs division for questions relating to Solar Cup, or if you have a high school team that is interested in participating in Solar Cup. For more information click here.
