By on January 22, 2019

Registration for Project W.E.T. (Water Education for Teachers) is now open. Project W.E.T is an award winning, nonprofit water education program and publisher that engages students with hands on activities and interdisciplinary lessons that teach important concepts about water. The upcoming opportunity for teachers is being provided so teachers are equipped with the tools to teach these concepts and better equip students to respect water and to use and conserve water as a way of life. The free program provides teachers with:

  • A Hands-on Environmental Education Curriculum
  • Project W.E.T. Curriculum and Activity Guide
  • Information on the Award-Winning Garden in Every School® Program and Grant Qualifications
  • Continental Breakfast and Luncheon

In addition to the above items, reimbursements for substitute teachers may be available. Also, teachers planning to participate in the Garden in Every School® Program in 2019-20 school year must attend this mandatory workshop.
