MWEE Programs

SEF regularly works with schools to develop in-depth citizen science programs in which students conduct a long-term investigation of a local waterway following NOAA’s Meaningful Watershed Educational Experience (MWEE) curriculum model. Throughout the course of their investigation, students participate in a variety of classroom-based lesson plans and field experiences led by Foundation staff members that address current issues facing local waterways, produce tangible water quality data, and culminate in the implementation of student-led action projects to improve water quality and educate the public about local environmental challenges facing their community.
