Project WET Training
Educator training for the Project WET Curriculum and Activity Guide 2.0 occurs throughout Michigan. A network of facilitators from a variety of organizations has been trained to deliver the six-hour training workshops. The Project Wet Curriculum and Activity Guide 2.0 is a collection of innovative, interdisciplinary activities that are hands-on, easy to use, and fun. Designed and committed to state, provincial, and national educational standards,
The Project WET Foundation publishes children’s activity booklets, children’s story books, educators’ guides, maps and posters that teach a variety of critical water topics through hands-on, science-based activities. Project WET activities cover diverse topics and disciplines. The Project WET 2.0 Guide is only available at trainings. In other words, when you get trained, you will receive the guide. Unlike other Project WET Foundation publications, the guide cannot be purchased separately.
