Project WET (Water Education for Teachers) is an award-winning, nonprofit water education program and publisher. The program facilitates and promotes awareness, appreciation, knowledge, and stewardship of water resources through the dissemination of classroom-ready teaching aids and the establishment of internationally sponsored Project WET programs. The Water Education Foundation is the California Coordinator for Project WET, and organizes workshops up and down the state for K-12 teachers.
Project WET activities are designed to engage students of all ages – in formal and non-formal education settings – in the study of water through interactive simulations, use of models and reality-based scenarios. The award-winning, NSTA-recommended Project WET Curriculum and Activity Guide 2.0 continues our dedication to 21st-century, cutting-edge water education with 64 activities studying water science, as well as water challenges from multiple viewpoints.
Project WET believes that informed people are more likely to participate in the decision making process and to make a difference through their actions. Project WET invites educators, resource managers, community leaders and concerned citizens to join Project WET in educating young people about one of the most precious resources on the planet – water.
