Project WET

Project WET is a curriculum which focuses on water education for teachers (WET), students, parents and community leaders. The curriculum offers 60 plus hands-on and interdisciplinary activities that educate about water and water issues with minimal supplies and funding needed. For the 2016 SECO Conference, we will offer session participants the Project WET Sampler, which has 7 of the 60 activities described above. We will also provide Healthy Water, Healthy People (HWHP), which is the middle/high school secondary curriculum module to the Project WET Guide. HWHP offers 25 hands-on activities involving water related issues, health and aquatic insect education for students and adults.
