What is the Tucson Education Program?

Sponsored by Tucson Water, APW's Tucson Education Program is dedicated to working directly with teachers and students within the Tucson area to activate thinking and engage students in exploration and inquiry about water and the world. Our programs help teachers meet Arizona Academic Standards in their classrooms and provide professional development opportunities that evolve instructional practice and deepen content knowledge. By delivering in-classroom presentations and facilitating field trips at Sweetwater Wetlands, our AmeriCorps Water Educators further extend classroom learning. Annually, APW also holds three 4th grade Water Festivals in Southern Arizona and engages volunteers from the community to bring real-world, relevant water education to students.

“Water stewardship begins when people know about, understand, and connect to the water cycle. Arizona Project WET facilitates this connection for Tucson Water customers. For over a decade Arizona Project WET has taught our community about our unique water resources.”
