2021 Virtual Project WET Conference

Tue Aug. 17, 2021 to Thu Aug. 19, 2021

Navigating the Waters of a Post-Covid Era

We wish we could be together in person in 2021 but given the time frame, we have decided to make 2021 a virtual conference again. However, we promise to make it fun Project WET style!

This year’s conference will focus on looking ahead to how we will all deliver education in the future as we move into a post-pandemic era in 2021. We will discuss new tools, strategies for reaching educators and students, hot topics of interest and—of course—do some Project WET activities!

We will use Whova as the communication platform and link in with Zoom for meetings and presentations.

Using Whova

Project WET has been using Whova, a conference app, to communicate and organize our conferences since 2018. Whova has expanded its capabilities for virtual conferences and we look forward to using it again this year.
