Description: TAHOE EDUCATORS!

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. Our activities are designed to supplement existing curriculum and reinforce practices integrated within Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards – and provide strong foundations for STEAM, Project-Based and Service-Learning programs.
For a $10 registration fee, participants attending this training will receive a copy of Project WET Guide 2.0, including access to over 100 water education activities and detailed correlations to Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), access to Project WET’s new ‘Using Project WET to teach Climate Resilience’ module - plus lunch and light refreshments.
