Kerry Schwartz is Faculty with Arizona Cooperative Extension and the Water Resources Research Center at the University of Arizona and the Director of the Arizona Project WET (APW) water education program. Her statewide program develops water stewardship and STEM literacy through three pathways: 1) teacher professional development that evolves instructional practices and deepens content knowledge, 2) direct student outreach that delivers or extends classroom learning, and 3) community engagement that offers effective involvement in K-12 education. Kerry directs a team of education coordinators working out of three extension offices and sustains partnerships with over 30 corporations, foundations and governmental agencies. Her master’s degree in geohydrology and 8 years of experience in environmental consulting enable her to deepen content knowledge about water resources with real world examples.
