Providing professional development is a key component of the overall plan for It’s Our Water. Some IOW materials are available online, but to receive all curriculum materials, educators need to complete either a live workshop ($35) or the online workshop ($45). These in-depth professional development workshops provide educators with the know how to successfully implement It’s Our Water in the classroom. The self-paced, online workshop is available anytime for educators to take when it’s convenient for them. After successful completion, you will receive a certificate and all the IOW curriculum materials including Activity Guide CD, Video DVD, Project WET Guide, and Field Monitoring Guide. Check the the NC Office of Environmental Education’s Calendar of Events for the scheduled live workshops in your area or contact the IOW Coordinator to schedule a workshop in your region.
Anyone can take the online workshop, but only North Carolina residents will receive the Project WET Curriculum and Activities Guide. If you are not a North Carolina resident, you can find out how to get the Project WET guide from your state's Project WET coordinator by going to the Project WET Website.
The videos and stream activities are available to all educators for free online.
