Educate. Empower. Act. The mission of Project WET is to reach children, parents, educators and communities of the world with water education. We invite you to join us in educating children about the most precious resource on the planet — water.
Project WET’s Kids In Discovery series (KIDs) was launched with publication of The Water Story in 1996 as an insert in the Wild Outdoor World (W.O.W.) Magazine for kids. Since 1996, more than 30 KIDs booklets have been published, many of which also have been translated into other languages.
KIDs booklets, written and fully illustrated for eight to 12 year olds, engage students in hands-on learning about various topics.
Creative investigations, demonstrations, science experiments, educational games and stories stimulate understanding of many water topics. These informative, inexpensive booklets are excellent complements to school curricula or Project WET educator guides. They also stand alone as a fun introduction to natural resource knowledge.
Since 1996, numerous organizations have approached Project WET about partnering to create KIDs activity booklets focused on specific topics.
For example, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) sponsored publication of several KIDs books to increase environmental literacy. Together, NOAA, with its technical expertise, and Project WET, with its educational knowledge and network of water educators, created several award-winning publications recognized by the Association of Educational Publishers (AEP) and Independent Publishers.
