The mission of the SCB education program is to educate students about Pinellas County’s water resources. The program emphasizes resource recovery, environmental stewardship and career opportunities. We accomplish this through facility tours (grades 6+), classroom presentations (K-12) and STEM-related events for K-12 students, post-secondary institutions and other education-related agencies.
