Project WET

Water Education Today

Missouri Project WET

Teach students how to think, not what to think.

Our work

Project WET: Water Education Today is dedicated to solving critical environmental challenges by teaching the world about water. We do this by providing hands-on, science-based water education resources to formal and non-formal educators around the world. These resources encourage responsible environmental stewardship and promote meaningful action to address environmental challenges, climate change, social justice, and sustainability.

Water literacy

We believe that hands-on education, interactive, and critical thinking focus curriculum on water and science can get students outdoors and build lasting stewardship for the precious resources. Our conceptual framework of Water Literacy Principles is the foundational element of our water education curriculum and serves as the basis for creating a water-literate society.
