The Science Outreach Center at Saint Francis University invites middle and high school teachers to participate in the B-WET Watershed NOAA Chesapeake Bay Watershed and Training program. The program aims to facilitate the development of meaningful watershed educational experiences
(MWEEs) through integrative curriculum units, and make the existing watershed curriculum developed by trained teachers while using watershed systems as a context for learning. The program consists of Summer Institute, curriculum development and activities during the fall of 2017, and a student competition at the
Regional Watershed Festival in December 2017.
Teacher Professional Development Institute: July 24-28, 2017.
The purpose of the professional development is to introduce teachers to the importance of the headwaters of the Chesapeake Bay watershed. Best management practice (BMP) solutions will be created for addressing watershed issues on school grounds or the local community. Through field trips
and classroom activities the teachers will be introduced to Abandoned Mine Drainage (AMD) geochemistry and passive remediation systems, delineation of watersheds surrounding the school districts, assessment of biological and physical water parameters associated with local BMPs, and connections with Bay
issues. The Summer Watershed Institute will also provide time for the teacher to collaborate and learn from their peers and for practicing their skills.
