Teachers on the Estuary Workshop
Chesapeake Bay-area teachers, join the NOAA Environmental Science Training Center and partners to explore how we can make curriculum come alive by using real data.
How can we make curriculum come alive with real data collected by both students and environmental science professionals from throughout the watershed to address real questions? Learn to integrate local and national environmental data into your classroom through cross-disciplinary, hands-on field activities and online resources from NOAA’s Chesapeake Exploration and Estuaries 101 curricula.
This dynamic online course will ask you to take your learning outside to investigate your local environment. Investigations will be supported/facilitated by community leaders, scientists, and educators from NOAA and the Chesapeake Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve. This course is designed to model a Meaningful Watershed Educational Experience (MWEE) through participant-driven field experiences and authentic research.
While the course will be conducted remotely, it will incorporate outdoor, inquiry-based investigations in your yard and community when possible. A $200 MWEE implementation support fund is available to each participant upon completion of all course requirements.
More information on the course and registration is available from the Chesapeake Bay Foundation.
