Project WET is grounded in the core beliefs that water connects us all and that water is for all water users. Water alone is not enough to solve the world’s pressing water issues, however. Educating our youth through hands-on, instructive activities will instill values and impart knowledge to the next generation of water users, allowing them to make informed choices about water and their lives in a way that positively impacts both environmental and personal health.
“WET” stands for Water Education for Teachers. Project WET develops educational activities and curriculum about water for educators in the broadest sense of the word—from traditional school settings to informal learning opportunities such as community centers and clubs. Project WET activities are easy to teach and fun for both students and teachers, enhancing the learning process. The activities also incorporate a wide range of skills and disciplines, providing a well-rounded educational guide for teachers.
