NNPS Earns Chesapeake Bay Grant for Student Investigations

(01/27/2016) -Newport News Public Schools has earned an $11,000 grant from the Chesapeake Bay Restoration Fund Advisory Committee to provide all seventh-grade students with Chesapeake Bay field experiences as part of the Environmental Scholars Program.

This is the second consecutive year that NNPS was awarded this grant, which will serve over 2,000 seventh-grade students. Building on the sixth-grade curriculum that introduces students to the Chesapeake Bay, the grant gives students the opportunity to examine coastal habitats and conduct scientific investigations with oysters in the Chesapeake Bay.
