Event Thank You

Thanks to everyone who made the Model Water Tower Competition possible!

Thanks to all the parents and students who submitted creative, innovative water towers from almost entirely recycled materials. Thanks to our volunteers who worked so hard getting everyone through each of the stations quickly. Thanks to William and everyone at aSTEAM Village for bringing such bright students together to learn more about Engineering.

And a big thanks to our sponsor Missouri American Water Works Association (MO-AWWA) for financing our prizes. We couldn’t have had such an awesome event without all of your hard work and support!!
