About Chesapeake Exploration

Chesapeake Exploration is an online learning platform hosted by the NOAA Chesapeake Bay Office. This site provides educators with access to courses that will advance their knowledge about local science topics and resources. 

Courses listed under Available Courses are those that are currently open for enrollment. They are self-paced, meaning that you can complete them on the timescale that works best for you. Other courses may be facilitated by instructors throughout the year. Learn about these on the Announcements bar.

If you would like to host one of these courses (like Model Activities) to use with your students, contact Bart Merrick (bart.merrick@noaa.gov).
