The Film

A sweeping Large Format film is the anchor of Expedition Chesapeake. This is the first large format film to focus on the Chesapeake Bay watershed and it is the first film to be developed by Whitaker Center. Filming will begin in 2018.

The Online Experience

Expedition Chesapeake is both an entertainment and educational experience. Whitaker Center has partnered with The Pennsylvania State University and the PA Department of Education to develop a series of interactive modules that will excite young people to become more active stewards of this natural resource. A series of six educational modules has been developed for middle school and high school teacher to use in science and social studies classes. The modules are available at no cost at here.

The Traveling 4D Science Exhibit

The Chesapeake Bay watershed touches six states and the District of Columbia. Whitaker Center is committed to teaching students and all residents across this vast resource about this national treasure. The Traveling 4D Science Exhibit will bring this story to schools and community centers, recreation areas and other venues throughout the watershed.
