Experts predict that water will be one of the biggest environmental challenges facing our children as they reach adulthood. Across the world and here in southern Nevada, water is an important issue. This training provides objective, experiential, science-based water education scaffolded for our youngest learners up to our graduating high school students.
The two-session virtual workshop will provide teachers with an engaging water education experience. Project Wet, a national water curriculum, explores water’s physical properties, human use, as a managed resource, and even water’s cultural and artistic heritage. Through immersive Project Wet activities, teachers will gain understanding of water's critical role in Nevada, while also gaining practice and confidence to begin incorporating this content into their classroom teaching.
Day 1 - The physical properties of water, how water moves through our environment; water use, and water availability.
Day 2 - Water in Nevada; where is it, how is it used and what does the future have in store for our water supplies?
Preparing today's youth for future water management issues is paramount. We can equip them now with the knowledge and skills to be able to make decisions and engineer creative solutions for scientific problems.
