Did you know Stroud Water Research Center education team members are Project Water Education Today (WET) facilitators? We engage local pre-service teachers, in-service classroom teachers, and non-formal educators in Project WET professional development workshops year-round, including award-winning curricula from Project WET 2.0 (K-12), Getting Little Feet WET (ages 3-6), and Healthy Water Healthy People (sixth grade – university level).

We hope Project WET’s suite of free and discounted Home and Distance Learning Resources will support water education for all ages throughout emergency remote instruction. Here are our favorite highlights:

  • Self-directed educational resource that uses interactive games to teach children ages 7-12 different water topics—ranging from global to personal perspectives—which together reflect many of the complex and important roles of water in our everyday lives. Explore the water cycle, soap and water science, watersheds, and more!
  • Healthy Habits Coloring Pages: Creatively teach early learners about healthy hygiene and healthy communities.
  • Free Downloadable Picturebook: Water for YOU and ME!: Story and suggested activities that help children ages 3-6 understand the importance of water to life and its use in keeping people healthy.

As part of a boots-in-the-water education program at the Stroud Center, Girl Scout Juniors determine the percentage of water on Earth during the Project WET activity “Blue Planet.”
