Project WET (Water Education for Teachers) is a comprehensive curriculum guide that offers many hands-on activities for students and teachers that pertain to many aspects of water education.  In Connecticut, the CT Department of Energy and Environmental Protection is the sponsor of Project WET, offering educator workshops throughout the state.
