PUB works closely with schools and the Ministry of Education to educate students on the water journey – that it takes a lot of effort to produce good, clean and high-quality water in Singapore – so that they will trust and treasure every drop. Beyond water sustainability through closing the water loop, we also focus on the importance of closing the carbon loop, coastal protection, and flood resilience, against the backdrop of climate change. We offer a variety of programmes, activities and resources customised for students of different age groups.
Children learn how precious water is and acquire good habits to conserve water and the importance of keeping our waters clean.

Children get to learn about the Singapore Water Story and our Four National Taps through gallery tours and hands-on workshops. For more in-depth learning, students may attempt the Student Learning Space package and carry out water audits in their schools.
Students learn about climate resilience and Singapore's strategy on water management, coastal protection, and flood management through self-directed learning activities as well as specially curated experiential learning programmes such as the Geographical Investigations.

Students get to gain a better appreciation on water sustainability topics through ideation and prototyping to solve real world challenges, as well as joining PUB in advocating for the water cause.
