The Hach Scientific Foundation and Project WET (Water Education for
Teachers), drawing on over fifty years of success in water quality test kit
manufacturing and water education, have partnered to create Healthy Water,
Healthy People – a new and innovative water quality education program.
Healthy Water, Healthy People is associated with Project WET, and originated
to meet the growing demand for information and education on water quality in
the United States and around the world. The Healthy Water, Healthy People
program encourages deep investigation of water quality topics and issues
through development of user-friendly materials that are appropriate for all
levels of users – from beginner to advanced.
Healthy Water, Healthy People is proudly sponsored by The Hach Scientific
Foundation. The mission of the Hach Scientific foundation is to foster and
support science and science education, and to make evident the
interdependence between science education and the public. The foundation
believes strongly in the sciences and intends to support appropriate
endeavors that encourage the youth of America to pursue a positive
exploration of the sciences.
The Hach Scientific Foundation entertains requests for proposals on an
invitation only basis.
