Living Classrooms Foundation has provided unique hands-on, interdisciplinary and environmental education programs aboard historic ships and on land since 1985. These dynamic, “learning by doing” programs emphasize applied learning in math, science, social studies, language arts, and social skills.
The programs serve students from a variety of backgrounds and economic means and range in length from one-day expeditions for school and youth groups to extended shipboard and land/sea programs. Participants see how academic skills are used in the real world. Leadership and teamwork are key objectives as students work together to raise and lower sails, trawl for marine life, perform scientific tests and explore the commerce, history, natural resources, and ecosystems of the Chesapeake Bay.
Living Classrooms maritime E-STEM education programs serve thousands of students per year from throughout the region aboard the Foundation’s floating classrooms including schooner Lady Maryland, Chesapeake Bay Buyboat Mildred Belle and Skipjack Sigsbee.
Students and adults were served with hands-on environmental STEM education and maritime history in 2019
