Curriculum

Project WET is a nonprofit education program established in 1984 by the North Dakota State Water Commission. Its success there led to programs in other Western states. In 1990, the program went nation-wide. A Project WET Curriculum & Activity Guide is the centerpiece of the program with a collection of field-tested innovative, water-related activities that are hands-on, easy to use and fun! Project WET activities incorporate a variety of formats, grade specific, laboratory investigations, discussion of local and global topics. The lessons are aligned with the California Content Standards.

California's Project WET program is coordinated by the Water Education Foundation.

WEWAC

The mission of the Water Education Water Awareness Committee (WEWAC) is to promote the efficient use of water and to increase the public awareness of the importance of water in Southern California.
