Abstracts of presentations given in session 7 of the 2008 UCOWR Conference.


Connections to K-12 educators and state education networks can provide vital links to the communities that our outreach, research and management strategies serve. Project WET (Water Education for Teachers) is an international program for public education related to water that can be used to engage adults and children in learning about their water resources. The program provides curricular resources, teaching aids and most importantly educator training in the science of water, the social aspects of water resources (historic through future), and the challenges we face as scientists and managers to maintain high quality and sustained utilization of this vital resource.
