Project WET is a nationally developed, water education program for educators that is interactive, inquiry-based, hands-on, and easy-to-use! Project WET’s interdisciplinary activities engage students in learning about atmospheric water, surface water, ground water, cultural and historical uses of water, and contemporary water management issues such as nonpoint source pollution. Project WET is designed to teach students how to think, rather than what to think. Our workshop will focus on the science of water, watersheds, and water use and Project WET lessons applicable to SOL strands that emphasize systems, environment & organisms, and natural resources & human impacts.
Participants will receive:
- Project WET 2.0 Curriculum & Activity Guide (2011)
- A certificate of participation stating your eligibility to receive 6 hours of recertification credits
- Ideas and techniques to use the Project WET guide with your students in and outside of the classroom
Cost: FREE! This workshop is sponsored by the VA Department of Environmental Quality, VA Department of Game & Inland Fisheries, and your State Arboretum of Virginia.
