ProjectWET Workshop Climate Change & California Water

The California Department of Water Resources (DWR), Alameda County Water District (ACWD) and California Project WET program invite educators who work with students in 3rd through 12th grades for a workshop learning about the science of climate change and the connection to California’s water resources.

Understanding climate change and its link to flood, drought, water quality, and more is crucial for all Californians. In this special workshop, you will learn activities to use with your students to help them understand the impacts of climate change on water and steps they can take to adapt to our changing environment.

This workshop will be an interdisciplinary exploration of climate science, how local and state water managers are applying the science to conserve California’s water resources and develop climate resilient communities – and how the interdisciplinary activities of Project WET can help you engage your students in the study of climate science in your class or education program!

Project WET activities are designed to engage students in the study of water through the use of models, interactive simulations, and reality-based scenarios. Interdisciplinary Project WET activities supplement existing curriculum, are correlated to Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards, and provide strong foundations for STEAM, Project-Based, and Service- Learning programs.

For the $20 registration fee, participants will receive:

  • A wealth of current information on climate science and its application. 
  • An opportunity to interact with experts from ACWD’s Water Supply and Planning Division and DWR’s Climate Research staff.
  • A copy of the new Project WET ‘Foundations of Water Education’ guide.
  • Breakfast and lunch provided by ACWD.
  • An opportunity to receive 0.8 CEU credit.
  • A $100 stipend and return of your registration fee - minus Eventbrite fees – following completion of the workshop
