This two-week unit takes students through a scenario where they act as employees for a mock company called World EcoTouch WET, an environmental consulting firm.

In addition to the CTE/STEM focus of the unit/project lessons, educators will find academic lessons in Science, Math and English Language-Arts (ELA) that supplement the primary core area of study.

The structure of this unit and the materials contained within it were created by Joshua Bradley (CTE), Brianna Kleinschmidt (ELA), Lee Aidt (math), and Andrea Jenest (science) with support from the CTE Online curriculum leadership team and detailed coordination provided by the Course Specialist Robert Kuintzle.
