Description: Join members of the California Department of Water Resources Climate Change team and Project WET for a day learning about the science of climate change, how water managers at all levels are applying the science to safeguard California water supplies and help communities become more climate resilient – and how the interdisciplinary activities of Project WET can help engage students in the study of climate concepts and skills back in the classroom!
Project WET (Water Education for Teachers) 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. Interdisciplinary Project WET activities supplement existing curriculum and are correlated to and reinforce practices integrated within Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards – provide strong foundations for STEAM, Project-Based and Service Learning programs.
In addition to a light breakfast and lunch, participants will hear directly from DWR specialists on current climate science, how the science is being applied to increase the resiliency of California water systems, a copy of Project WET Guide 2.0, experiences with Project WET activities, an opportunity to receive 0.8 CEU credit – and a $50 stipend following completion of the workshop!
