Project WET

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. 

What is Project WET?

Project WET (Water Education for Teachers) is an interdisciplinary water education program intended to supplement a school's existing curriculum.  

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. 

Who can have access to Project WET?

  • Classroom teachers, public and private schools, grades K-12 
  • Resource agency educators 
  • Preschool and daycare teachers 
  • Youth organization leaders (i.e. 4-H, Scouts and Campfire) 
  • Nature center instructors 
  • Home School Teachers
