Description: Join the Department of Water Resources (DWR) Climate Change Team and Project WET for a day learning about the science of weather and climate change, how DWR is addressing climate change impacts on California’s water supply and how the interdisciplinary activities of Project WET can help you integrate climate science knowledge, skills and concepts back in the classroom!
The interdisciplinary Project WET activities are correlated to Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards and are an effective tool for integrating student knowledge of water resources with activities that include reality-based scenarios that provide strong foundations for STEAM education and Service Learning programs. Project WET activities are designed to supplement existing curriculum in formal and non-formal education settings.
Each participant will receive: an introduction to current climate science and applications to California water resources with emphasis on eastern California from the DWR Climate Science team; a copy of the Project WET Activity Guide 2.0, first-hand experience engaged in Project WET activities, breakfast, lunch, an opportunity to receive 0.8 CEU credit and a $50 stipend following completion of the training!
