The Great Water Odyssey℠ is a fun, interactive way for Florida’s students to learn about water resources and their protection and conservation. Odyssey nurtures a greater awareness and appreciation of Florida’s watersheds and their ecosystems, and promotes responsible actions for the health, protection and use of Florida’s water resources.
Odyssey includes components of science, geography, social studies, reading, technology and math. As students explore the water world of waterdrop Hydro and his cousin Agua and their friends, the learning is masked in fun.

The water cycle
Meet Hydro, a somewhat naive waterdrop who is looking for his wayward waterdrop cousin, Agua. Following Agua’s clues leads him on a tumbling journey through the water cycle. Then Raleigh Otter teaches us more about the water cycle with an interactive hunt through a watershed showing us how waterdrops like Hydro move through it.
States of matter
Following Agua’s lead, Hydro freezes and melts, changing between several states of matter. Along the way, we learn how heat and cold impact the water cycle. Hot on Agua’s trail, Hydro evaporates and lands in a cloud, where a clue from Agua sends him on a geographic quest, exploring watersheds in Florida.
