About this Event

Project WET (Water Education for Teachers) is a collection of innovative, water-related activities that are hands-on, easy to use and fun! Project WET activities are easily incorporated into a school's existing curricula. Project WET is intended for teachers and non-formal educators working with youth in Kindergarten through 12th grade. The program focuses on water's physical properties, water quality and what impacts it, and peoples' relationship to water throughout their lives.

Project WILD, Aquatic WILD, Flying WILD, and Growing Up WILD are all interdisciplinary and provide hands-on, inquiry-based activities at relevant grade levels. They can be used indoors and out in urban, suburban and rural environments. Educators find the curricula beneficial because the activities use a variety of teaching methods: discussion, role-playing, guided imagery, to accommodate various learning styles.

Facilitator: Drew Hopkins, Environmental Educator, NYS Project WILD and Project WET Co-coordinator

Lunch will be provided.
