Chesapeake Exploration: Online Courses for Educators

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 science topics, teaching and resources. 

Use the Course Search Box or explore the Course Categories to find the currently available courses. Check back often to learn of new courses.

The courses are self-paced, meaning that you can complete them on the timescale that works best for you. The Moderated Courses are facilitated by instructors throughout the year. Learn about these on the top Announcements bar or by visiting the Environmental Science Training Center's website. The website will also list in-person workshops offered throughout the Chesapeake Bay region.
