About the Workshop
The Water Education Water Awareness Committee (WEWAC), a consortium of 15 water providers in western San Bernardino County and eastern Los Angeles County, hosts an annual free Project WET workshop. Project WET is designed to assist teachers in its service areas to engage their students with hands-on, interdisciplinary lessons that teach important concepts about water.
Monte Vista Water District will reimburse the substitute costs for the first 5 teachers who register for the workshop from schools within the District's service area. Funding request forms will be provided at the workshop.

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 and 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, and 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.
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.
