(Water Education for Teachers) is an interdisciplinary water education program intended to supplement a school's existing curriculum. The goal of Project WET is to facilitate and promote the awareness, appreciation, knowledge and stewardship of water resources through the development and dissemination of classroom-ready teaching aids and through the establishment of state sponsored Project WET programs. Lessons are interdisciplinary and designed for grades preK-12. By using Project WET services, activity guides, and resource materials, young people will gain the knowledge, skill and commitment needed to make informed decisions about water resource uses and conservation.
