Get WET Update

Get WET in New England: Ocean Literacy Through Watershed Education and Training is a sponsored project of NEOSEC. In the Get WET program, New England Aquarium leads NEOSEC institutional members to provide professional development that is grounded in Ocean Literacy and that addresses the goals of the NOAA Education Plan.  For more information on Get WET visit here.

Following are some recent updates from Get WET participating institutions:

New England Aquarium Our Get WET 2010 participants are hard at work getting their projects together for their final presentations on Saturday, December 4th at the New England Aquarium. The field experiences that participants have planned as part of their projects will take students to a variety of local habitats including Black’s Creek in Quincy, Buzzards Bay in New Bedford and the Beaver Brook North Reservation in Lexington as well as many others.  At each of these locations, a number of activities are planned from water quality testing to soil identification. The educators are using everything they learned during the summer to help their students understand the world just outside their school.  If you’d like to join us for the final presentations, please contact the Teacher Resource Center at or 617.973.6590.
