Branching Out into Water Ethics
How do we inspire young learners to become creative and critical thinkers, problem solvers, ethical decision-makers, and stewards of our environment? Each year, fourth-grade students from across Arizona participate in the Arizona Project WET (APW) Water Festival program, first completing the curriculum in the classroom and then exploring and engaging with large-scale models about the water cycle, watersheds, groundwater system, and water conservation technology, and how we can conserve water.
We transfer water research results and information to other researchers, water managers, policy makers, and the wider public through publications, conferences, lectures, seminars, and workshops.
Focus on scientific research, education, community outreach and engagement with a spectrum of topics, including water management and planning, water conservation, water harvesting, and water policy.
