If your child came home from school recently talking about a toilet game show or they walked into the house singing, "H2O, Go with the Flow" while doing a crazy dance, there is no doubt they just attended ZunZun's latest wastewater awareness assembly sponsored by Silicon Valley Clean Water (SVCW), formerly known as South Bayside System Authority (SBSA).
SVCW is engaging and educating the community in new creative ways by contracting with the award winning performance group ZunZun to sponsor assemblies at service area elementary schools.
ZunZun designed a dynamic, engaging, musical assembly specifically for SVCW and are now on "tour" singing their way through the water cycle, FOG (fats, oils, grease), and the
"Toilet Game Show." getting kids and teachers alike excited about the topics of wastewater, recycled water, and watershed protection.
The show is fun and interactive and meets the California State Content Standards in Science, Math, and Fine Arts.
The duo uses musical instruments from all over the world, performs bilingually (Spanish-English), and teaches a song that contains the word "water" in eight different languages. Kids learn important lessons about keeping sewers and wastewater plants safe by not putting fats, oils, and grease (FOG) or any type of wipes down the drain.
Ask kids who have seen the show about it and they might break into song and dance as they tell you how to protect sewers. Be sure to take their advice, only flush pooh, pee and toilet paper!
The show is offered to K-6 schools and is 45 minutes long. Fun songs, audience participation, and memorable jingles make this "the best assembly a school has ever had!" If you are interested in seeing the show at your local elementary contact ZunZun at (831) 426-0684 or email email@example.com to reserve your spot.
