B-WET Shifting Baselines Learning Community

Bay Watershed Education and Training ProgramThe B-WET Shifting Baselines Project has developed a Meaningful Watershed Educational Experience (MWEE) that uses maps, aerial photographs, and internet resources along with outdoor experiences to teach watershed concepts, science content and environmental stewardship to middle and high school students. It was designed to address science standards in Mississippi for grade 7 and in Alabama for grade 6, but the activities were tailored to teach 5th – 11th grade concepts. The Bay Watershed Education and Training (B-WET) program is a national project of NOAA's Office of Education.
