Description

Description: Project WET (Water Education for Teachers) is a collection of innovative, water-related activities that are hands-on, easy to use and fun! The program focuses on water as a shared resource as well as a shared responsibility. The goal of Project WET is to facilitate and promote awareness, appreciation, knowledge, and stewardship of water resources through the development and dissemination of classroom ready teaching aides.

Project WET’s award-winning Curriculum and Activity Guide 2.0 is loaded with interdisciplinary activities about watersheds and water quality along with science concept activities. Project WET is easily integrated into existing curricula. This guide is recommended by the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA). Training at a Project WET workshop includes the Activity Guide and web portal membership.

Maine Project WET is coordinated by Lynne Richard, Education and Outreach Manager for the Lake Auburn Watershed Protection Commission.  Lynne received an MS Ed in Science Education and taught middle school for nearly 20 years before moving to Maine in 2000.  Lynne has developed and implemented education programs for the largest water utilities in Maine, and is dedicated to promoting a deep connection to our water resources so that they may be protected for future generations.
