VIMS hosts ‘Summer On the Bay Online’ through August

Students can explore and learn about the Chesapeake Bay this summer through “Summer On the Bay Online,” hosted by the Virginia Institute of Marine Science.

Join educators from the Chesapeake Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (CBNERR) online every week from June 15-Aug. 31 to learn about estuaries, macroinvertebrates, dissection and more.

CBNERR educators will post a video for each topic, plus other resources like craft projects, online simulations and experiments students can do at home. There may even be some virtual field trips throughout the summer.

Materials will be mostly appropriate for elementary and middle school students, but can be adapted for high school students. The program is open to all, free of charge. Students can connect with education staff to ask questions, tell them what you’ve made or just say “Hi.”

Check the Summer On the Bay webpage at or the CBNERR Facebook page each week for the newest activities.
