LOTT's Water Education and Technology (WET) Science Center opened in 2010 to provide the community with a fun, hands-on opportunity for learning all about water - one of our most precious resources. Together, citizens and LOTT can conserve our water resources, support reclaimed water use, and take actions that will help protect Puget Sound. Learning more is the first step. Come check out our interactive exhibit gallery, attend a Saturday program, evening lecture, or bring your class on a field trip!

  • We got there just an hour before closing, but it was during a coastal wolves event. Just in that time, my kids had a lot of fun with all the wolf stuff. AND ITS FREE!!! Definitely going again!
  • Awesome Staff! Great learning stations & activities for children! I had my 6y.o. Granddaughter & my 10 y.o. Grandson for the Weekend of 7/26-7/28/2019, we saw this place on the way to somewhere else and opted to go check out the Wet Science Center. My Grandbabies COULDN'T get enough of the Scavenger Hunt. We had did some cool artwork & before I knew it they had left the classroom rushing back to do more at one of the learning stations. 👏👏👏👍Kudos & Thanks so much for putting a smile on our faces. I love seeing children enjoy learning experiences.
