Title: Water Topics for Teachers 
Description: This program, hosted by NHDES and American Ground Water Trust, will give a unique opportunity for teachers to explore aspects of water that are relevant to New Hampshire. Water science and water management experts from the water industry and government agencies will be presenting. We recognize that teachers in all grades must adhere to state standards for content and required learning objectives, and so our approach, through class sessions, demonstrations, discussions and handouts, is to demonstrate how to integrate water topic subject matter into existing curricula. The program will show that exciting and practical "water science" can be applied to many traditional subject areas. We believe that teachers who are excited about environmental education and who are provided with some training in water-related cause-and-effect will be more likely to effectively teach environmental concepts to their students with a positive and motivating style.
