In Massachusetts, MEES is the primary sponsor of Project WET, a national nonprofit water education program. The goal of Project WET is to facilitate and promote the awareness, appreciation, knowledge and stewardship of water resources through the development and dissemination of classroom ready teaching aids.
Project WET is grounded in the belief that when informed, people are more likely to participate in the decision making process and to make a difference through their actions. The development of a water ethic should begin at an early age. Children benefit from parents, teachers and mentors who recognize not only the scientific but also the social and cultural aspects of water resource education.
Certified facilitators conduct workshops where educators, community leaders and natural resource managers receive instruction in the use of Project WET materials. Workshop participants attending 6-hour workshops receive the Project WET Curriculum and Activity Guide containing over 90 innovative, interdisciplinary activities for grades K-12 that are hands-on, easy to use and fun. Designed with a commitment to state and national standards, the Guide addresses the following content areas:
Workshop participants are then encouraged to integrate activities from the Guide into existing curricula of a school, museum, university pre-service class, community organization, or other appropriate forums.For further information or to receive a schedule of Project WET workshops, please email
