6th Graders Learn About the Chesapeake Bay Watershed
The Alliance is proud to be a partner in BWISE, or Bay Watershed in Science Education! BWISE is a partnership between the Alliance, Maymont, Henrico County Public Schools, Henricopolis, VCU, and Keep Henrico Beautiful, and aims to build Henrico County Pubic Schools teacher capacity to facilitate immersive and authentic Meaningful Watershed Educational Experiences (MWEEs) and provide students with a complete MWEE. Funding for the BWISE program has been provided by a 3-year National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Bay Watershed Education & Training grant
In addition to training teachers this summer in MWEE, the program recently connected students with Virginia Public Media and Light House Studio to create their own videos.
