We’re excited to be adding a lot of new content to our Educator Tab this Academic Year.
This summer we gathered a lot of educational materials and resources from across our industry and community partners. We aim to serve as an educational clearinghouse related to water and wastewater to support your efforts in the classroom and beyond. We’ve decided to make these materials available to you immediately so you’ll be able to use the materials for your lesson planning. Please excuse our rough appearance while our formatting catches up to all the new content. Just click on the links below or choose them from the main navigation above and you’ll be able to see what we’re talking about.
More than in any other area, we’ve expanded our resources to support your curriculum development needs. By pulling on the collective resources of our partners we’ve put a vast array of materials at your fingertips all in one place. The materials include both general water-related curriculum (e.g., related to watersheds, water conservation, and water resource planning) as well as more specialized materials. All of it can be used to build into your curriculum to provide a real-world context for skills that you are trying to teach. We also still have our featured BAYWORK materials complete with Teacher’s Guides and editable Student Worksheets to help you teach important skills in math and science.

Give your students a behind-the-scenes look at the processes and people who make sure we have clean water and that the dirty water is treated for the sake of the environment.
Many Baywork agencies offer field trips! Check out the list of field trips
Need a unique guest speaker? Volunteers from BAYWORK agencies can talk about a wide variety of water and wastewater topics.

It is challenging for students, parents, teachers, and counselors to determine what career will work best for a particular individual, then find the resources necessary to achieve that goal. This section features resources BAYWORK has prepared to explain the important work done by engineers and skilled trades workers in the water industry, the skills needed to perform the work, and where students and job-seekers can find the training needed in order to prepare for these jobs. The Careers Section also provides links to current job openings (both internships and permanent positions).
