Trip to the Guma Valley Dam

So this week I took the Kindergarten through Third grade classes to the Guma Valley Dam to learn about how electricity is made. We had such a good time. The gentleman, Mr. Koroma, that showed us around did a FANTASTIC job! He taught us all about how the water gets from the dam to the transformer rooms and then is purified for drinking water. He took us around the whole water works and was very patient with the kids.

After our tour we went to the dam to have a picnic and play for a while. It was the perfect day for it. The dam and surrounding mountains created a beautiful backdrop for our outing. All in all it was one of the best field trips I've ever been on.

I helped to design and construct Guma Dam 1960-1965. Good to see that it was still fulfilling its function in 2008.
