NOAA is excited to be working with the North American Association for Environmental Education (NAAEE) to offer a grant opportunity to bring together two great programs: NOAA B-WET and the U.S. Department of Education 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC). These grants will enable experienced environmental education providers to work with 21st CCLC sites to deliver authentic STEM experiences emphasizing the unique assets and expertise of NOAA. This opportunity is open to all school districts (not only those in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed) in states that have indicated support for the “Student Goal” (MWEEs) as a part of the Chesapeake Bay Agreement, including: Pennsylvania, Maryland, District of Columbia, Delaware, and Virginia.
