MOE’s new ‘outdoor water channelling experience’ – Water Worx, See it in action.

Posted by Michael MOE, 12 February, 2021

The best way to experience our Water Worx, ‘outdoor water channelling resource‘ is by seeing it in action. 

MOE’s new Water Worx is a multi-educational experience. This highly interactive educational resource allows children to channel water, creating water paths and cascades, resembling stream-like movement.  An interactive and sensory way for children to experiment with water flow in a group environment. This high-end product is perfect for schools, nurseries and outdoor learning.  To find out more about our new product, visit the product page. 

Water play is both enjoyable and educational. It helps children develop eye-hand coordination and math and science concepts. It also enhances social skills and encourages cooperation. It’s an amazing sensory experience introducing them to textures (slippy, slimy…) and temperatures. It will also help master the pincer grip which will enable them to hold a pencil correctly at school. Actioning the pump is a favourite of our pre-schoolers and sure helps to build these large arm muscles!  Observing a branch or paper float or sink will teach them, in a very practical way, how and why things happen. But above all, it encourages them to use their imagination, develops creative thinking which plays an important role in problem-solving.

Imagine then, the number of new words they will learn while having fun with water and having conversations about it! Basin, Damp, Depth, Drain, Pump, Channel, Flow, Flow, Drenched, Drizzle, Sieve…

Importantly, water play releases energy, it can be both invigorating or relaxing and calming for young children.

This lovely piece of outdoor learning and play equipment was recently installed at Saddleworth Stars Private Nursery in Oldham.
