Project WET (Water Education for Teachers) is dedicated to reaching children, parents, teachers and community members with water education. Since its creation in 1984, Project WET has achieved its worldwide mission of water education by:
- Publishing water resource materials in several languages
- Providing training workshops on divers water topics
- Organizing community water events
- Building a worldwide network of resource professionals
The Project WET Curriculum and Activity Guide is a collection of water-related activities that are hands-on, easy to use, and fun! More than 60 activities incorporate large and small group learning, whole-body activities, laboratory investigations and a variety of other formats. Supplementary resources are available to complement and enrich many of the activities.
In late 1994, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources introduced Project WET in Ohio. The Ohio Water Education Program, a collaboration of state agencies and Associations, helped organize and facilitate Project WET. Today, Project WET – Ohio is managed by the Ohio EPA’s Office of Environmental Education.
