WET stands for Water Education for Teachers. Project WET is an international, interdisciplinary, water science and education program for formal and non-formal educators of K-12 students.
In Tennessee, the mission of Project WET is to help teachers provide water education to their students with the goal of reducing nonpoint source pollution and improving water quality. This service is provided primarily through educator workshops. Project WET is located in The Center of Excellence for Field Biology of Austin Peay State University.
All educators of K-12th grade are welcome at Project WET workshops that are listed on EEinTennessee: public and private school teachers, pre-service teachers, interpretive staff and educators at parks, museums and nature centers.
