Our Living Lab Series are programs structured around long-term monitoring and research programs occurring at the Reserve. In order to connect students to the program, the Living Lab Series are field experiences that are designed to assist with the integration of classroom curriculum into field research. The framework for each experience allows for the difficulty level to be adjusted according to grade level. All the levels are aligned with NOAA’s Estuaries 101 Curriculum.
Similar to the Junior Living Lab Series, because each teacher and classroom is unique we provide four different student field experiences for teachers to select from. We hope you select a field experience that correlates to what is being taught in the classroom, thus, supporting teaching efforts. Below are general logistics and links to one-pagers outlining the overall concepts and correlating standard alignment.
