The WATER project is an exciting, standards-based water education program to use in your 4th-12th grade classrooms in Tucson, Southern Arizona, Maricopa County and Flagstaff. The goal is to facilitate classroom implementation of hands-on, minds-on water education programs aligned with state standards. We have integrated related components from several well-established water education programs, including Project WET, GLOBE, and Aquatic WILD to provide in-depth learning experiences for students. Materials from a variety of sources are integrated into four topical units of study and packaged into kits with classroom sets of materials. Each kit provides multidisciplinary, inquiry-based activities that meet state standards in different subject areas. Participating teachers receive:

  • on-loan teaching kits with curricular materials, audio visual aids, and scientific water testing equipment
  • the opportunity to attend training workshops for professional development credit
  • and classroom support from water education specialists.
