What Is Project WET?
Project WET’s mission is to reach children, parents, teachers and community members of the world with water education that promotes awareness of water and empowers community action to solve complex water issues. Project WET provides training workshops to educators at all levels, formal and non-formal, on diverse water topics so that those educators can reach children with objective, experiential, science-based water education.
The City of Boise partners with Project WET to provide trainings for educators in the Treasure Valley to give them tools to teach their students about water resources and conservation. Educators can check out any of our kits in the Resource Library to better implement programs they are trained on through Project WET.
