TCEP partners with Essex County Schools to Provide Over 550 Students with Watershed Experiences funded by NOAA B-WET grant

Essex County Public Schools has received a $117,910 grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Bay Watershed Education and Training (B-WET). These funds will support the development of the Essex Environmental Literacy Collaborative (EELC). The EELC is a collaborative with the Friends of the Rappahannock and Old Dominion University Center for Educational Partnerships (TCEP) to create a systemic and sustainable environmental literacy education program to reach students through targeted grade levels and courses that embed quality teaching and learning focused on environmental education, the impact of climate change, and modern science and engineering practices.
This three-year grant will sustain teacher capacity to build, develop, and implement Meaningful Watershed Educational Experiences (MWEEs) into the existing science curriculum.
