Project WET(Water Education for Teachers) is an international, interdisciplinary, water science and education program for formal and non-formal educators of K-12 students.

Minnesota Project WET trains classroom and other educators in hands-on, interactive lessons that are focused on water and encourage critical thinking. By providing training, materials, and support to these educators and water festivals for students, MN Project WET works to improve Minnesotans' understanding of our water resources.
