“Project WET’s mission is to reach children, parents, teachers, and community members of the world with water education that promotes awareness of water and empowers community action to solve complex water issues.”
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?

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.
