Global water awareness and future water security happens locally—one student, one teacher, and one lesson at a time.
Often we hear that better thinking is needed to address particularly prickly societal problems, business challenges, or scientific conundrums. ThinkWater is a national project supported by a $900,000 grant from USDA’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA). The project is designed by educators, scientists, and activists in partnership with the University of Wisconsin Extension to add thinking skills and awareness into existing water education lessons.
