Abstract: 

The Ground Water Flow Model is a popular and easy to use teaching tool for formal and nonformal educators of youths or adults. The model is constructed with a clear Plexiglas front which allows observers to watch water and contaminants introduced into the system move through underground rock formations. The model can be adapted to demonstrate how surface sources like rivers or wetlands can be connected to ground water. The model enables students to learn about porosity, permeability, water tables, confined aquifers, contamination, and other important ground water concepts. This educational package includes a model, users guide and video, and everything needed to conduct a ground water education class or workshop.
