Grants and cooperative agreements to USA nonprofit organizations, agencies, schools and school systems, IHEs, and tribal governments for environmental education for students in eligible areas of Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas. Required registrations may take over one month to complete. Education projects must target teachers and/or students in Gulf of Mexico coastal counties.
NOAA's B-WET program funds locally relevant, authentic experiential learning for K-12 audiences through Meaningful Watershed Educational Experiences (MWEEs). MWEEs are multi‐stage activities that include learning both outdoors and in the classroom and aim to increase understanding and stewardship of watersheds and related ocean, coastal, riverine, estuarine, and Great Lakes ecosystems. The goal of Gulf of Mexico B-WET is to increase understanding and stewardship of the Gulf of Mexico watershed and its local population, geography, culture, and natural, financial, and human resources.
Gulf B-WET funding is provided to support student investigation of environmental topics and issues, both locally and globally, that are of interest to them. Students identify actions to address these issues and understand the value of those actions, enabling them to help to protect and restore watersheds and related ocean, coastal, and Great Lakes ecosystems. Gulf B-WET funding also supports, high-quality professional development for teachers allowing them to gain confidence in the value of MWEEs and strategies for conducting MWEEs with students. Gulf B-WET also supports implementation of systemic MWEEs which reach the entire student population in one or more grades within a school district. In addition, and new for FY21, Gulf B-WET will support meaningful responses to the COVID-19 pandemic including creative and alternative approaches to watershed education, especially in marginalized groups, particularly students of color and students from low-income families, that are more likely to lose environmental education within their local school districts.
