Project WETUnderstanding Climate Change in California
The California Department of Water Resources and Project WET program invites educators working with students in 3rd through 12th Grades for an online workshop learning about the science of climate change, how water managers are applying the science to help safeguard California’s water supply and develop climate-resilient communities – and how the interdisciplinary activities of Project WET can help you integrate climate change science knowledge, concepts, and skills in your distance or in-class curriculum!
Project WET (Water Education Today) activities are designed to engage students of all ages – in formal and non-formal education settings – in the study of water through interactive simulations, use of models, and reality-based scenarios. Interdisciplinary Project WET activities supplement existing curriculum and are correlated to and reinforce practices integrated within Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards – provide strong foundations for STEAM, Project-Based, and Service Learning programs.
Participants completing this training will receive great information on current climate science, how the science is being applied to increase the resiliency of California water systems, a copy of Project WET Guide 2.0, an opportunity to receive 0.8 CEU credit – and a $50 stipend following completion of the training!
