|Data in the Classroom|
NOAA’s Chesapeake Exploration is a new and innovative collection of online activities for middle and high school students that brings the science of the Chesapeake Bay to life. Chesapeake Exploration gives teachers and their students unprecedented access to lessons designed around real-time observational data from CBIBS.
Inside a virtual classroom, Chesapeake Exploration guides students through an engaging investigative process that explores natural and human systems and cycles and the ways in which they interact throughout the Bay and its watershed.
Chesapeake Exploration, developed in partnership with National Geographic and the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, provides an exciting opportunity to further explore the concepts introduced by the NOAA Estuaries 101 curriculum. The beta version of the Chesapeake Exploration curriculum is now available. More information on Chesapeake Exploration is available from the NOAA Chesapeake Bay Office.
