Experiences, also known as "MWEEs".

MWEEs are B-WET's signature methodology and include multi-staged activities, both in the classroom and outdoors, that aim to increase the environmental literacy of all participants.

New England B-WET is one of NOAA's seven regional B-WET environmental education programs.

Through its competitive grant program New England B-WET promotes high quality environmental education, fosters the growth of new, innovative programs, and encourages capacity-building and environmental education partnerships within six New England states:
Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut.

Successful projects advance ocean, climate, and other environmental literacy goals and incorporate the goals of the NOAA Education Strategic Plan through (1) student hands-on environmental education in New England watersheds and (2) formal K-12 teacher and administrator professional development and support during student MWEEs.
