Meet Stephanie:

How long have you been a WET coordinator? I’ve been the Montana coordinator for almost three years now. 

What’s your favorite thing about doing WET workshops? Connecting educators with the tools they need to teach their students about the importance of protecting aquatic resources.

Give a quote from a recent workshop. "The workshop as well as the Project WET book gave me the tools and activities to work with all ages of students in the after-school program.  It has made me feel more comfortable with the information I'm passing along because I have a resource to go to.  I also am really enjoying fostering the importance of water quality in another generation."

What is your favorite WET activity? "8-4-1, One for All."
