What We Do >> Project WET Publications

Project WET Publications

The Project WET Foundation is a nonprofit educational publisher of children’s activity booklets, children’s story books, educators’ guides, maps and posters that teach a variety of critical water topics through hands-on, science-based activities.

Project WET developed its first activities in 1984. In 1995, Project WET published its cornerstone publication, the Project WET Curriculum and Activity Guide.

The success of this educators’ guide was followed by the development of several region- and topic-specific series: Conserve Water; Discover a Watershed; Healthy Water, Healthy People; Water and Education and Wonders of Wetlands.

Project WET’s Kids In Discovery series (KIDs) was launched with the publication of The Water Story in 1996.  Since then, more than sixty activity booklets have been published, many of which also have been translated languages such as Spanish, Portuguese, French, Dagbani and Kiswahili. 

In 2011, Project WET published the award-winning, National Science Teachers Association-recommended Project WET Curriculum and Activity Guide 2.0, completely revising, updating, and contemporizing the successful first edition. 

The Water and Education series and Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) materials were developed to serve educators and children in Africa, India, and Latin America.

Today, more than 300 activities covering a multitude of water-related topics appear in more than 80 Project WET publications.
