Program Descriptions

CHESPAX has developed programs and lesson plans that are supportive of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and the Maryland Environmental Literacy Standards (E-Lit). Most programs involve a field experience, often with a participating program site. All of the programs include hands on activities and resource materials to help the classroom teacher provide engaging lessons to support the targeted curriculum.
