Join us for one or more of these Project WET (Water Education for Teachers) Workshops!
The interdisciplinary Project WET activities support California Science, History/Social Science and National Common Core Standards and are an effective tool for integrating student knowledge of water resources with activities that include real-life based scenarios that provide strong foundations for STEAM and Service-Learning programs. Project WET activities are designed to supplement existing curriculum, including the use of EEI (Education & the Environment Initiative) curriculum units.
