Project WET activities are designed to satisfy the goals of educational programs by complementing existing curricula rather than displacing or adding more concepts. Project WET activities provide many opportunities to address curriculum objectives and educational standards. The Project Wet Curriculum and Activity Guide contains over 90 interdisciplinary activities designed for students in grades K-12 and are perfect for use in formal and non-formal education settings.
