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.

"White Wash" by filmmaker Ted Woods explores the complexity of race in America through the eyes of the ocean, tracing the history of African Americans and water culture from slavery, to civil rights wade-ins, to surfing in contemporary times. Also explored is the history of "black consciousness" as it evolves in the minds of black surfers, as they experience the power of transcending race as a constructive experience.
Alison Rose Jefferson, PhD, will lead a presentation on Tuesday, April 26, about Bruce's Beach, an early twentieth century African American resort in Manhattan Beach.
