Governor’s School awarded Bay Fund grant
Chesapeake Bay Governor’s School (CBGS) was recently awarded a grant from the Chesapeake Bay Restoration Fund.
The grant proposal, written by CBGS faculty, requested funding to support the purchase of electronic probeware to be used during CBGS field courses and in science classrooms. The probeware will provide students in all science disciplines taught at CBGS the opportunity to measure, record and analyze a diverse suite of chemical, biological and physical parameters. CBGS students also will be able to utilize the probeware to enhance data collection during their two-year independent research projects.
Funding for the Chesapeake Bay Restoration Fund Grant comes from the sale of Chesapeake Bay license plates. Applications for these specialty plates can be obtained at dmv.virginia.gov. For the 2013 grant cycle, the Chesapeake Bay Restoration fund recommended 68 projects for funding, totaling over $366,000 in grant funds for projects across the state.
