Youth build a working model of the California Aqueduct system.

"A Drop in the Bucket" explores the challenge of bringing water to Southern California, by having visitors build a working model of the California Aqueduct system.

Providing a hands-on introduction to basic engineering concepts, visitors design and build a system to deliver water to Californian cities, from San Francisco to San Diego.

Visitors learn about local and regional water issues, as well as the connection between water conservation and energy conservation.
