Project WET is Water Education for Teachers!

Established in 1990, Project WET is an interdisciplinary water education program, which targets formal and non-formal educators and young people in grades K-12.

 

How do you get WET?

Attend a workshop! After completion of a six hour training, educators are given a free Project WET curriculum and activity guide packed with 91 hands-on activities that cross many disciplines in the study of water and water resources - chemistry and physics, life science, earth systems, natural resource management, history and culture. During the workshop, educators learn how to incorporate local issues into the lessons.

Why should you get WET?

The new Project WET curriculum and activity guide 2.0 will help you achieve education goals as well as facilitate development skills for your students in teamwork, decision making, and problem solving. All materials are correlated with national and state curriculum standards and will engage your students in fun, interactive learning through Project WET’s intentional design of lessons that are science-based, multi-sensory, adaptable, contemporary, relevant, solution-oriented, and measurable.
