Mission Statement

Arizona Project WET (APW) develops water stewardship and STEM literacy by providing teacher professional development that evolves instructional practice and deepens content knowledge, direct student outreach that delivers or extends classroom learning, and community engagement.

Description

APW is part of the University of Arizona College of Agriculture and Life Sciences' Cooperative Extension program and the UA Water Resources Research Center. APW develops water stewardship and STEM literacy by providing teacher professional development focused on 21st century skills, direct student outreach that delivers or extends classroom learning, and community engagement. We engage students in relevant learning about a subject that is arguably the issue of this century: Water. From the tried and true Arizona Water Festival Program to the new School Water Audit Program (SWAP) and Water Investigations Program (WIP), APW engages students in relevant learning about a subject that is arguably the issue of this century: water. Passion drives educators to do what they do. This holds true for the Arizona Project WET team. With creativity, we stretch limited resources to accomplish so much! Filling the voids in the educational experience for Arizona’s students, we do things like work with teachers over multiple days to evolve their content knowledge and instructional practices, fully engage 1,000 school children in learning in a single day, facilitate student investigations of river systems, and empower students to lead their own water use audit and implement water savings.
