Living Classrooms operates in both Baltimore, MD and Washington, DC to strengthen communities and inspire young people to achieve their potential through hands-on education and job training, using urban, natural, and maritime resources as "living classrooms."

Our shipboard programs provide unique experiential education opportunities for all ages aboard historic Chesapeake Bay workboats. These interdisciplinary programs explore local waterways through hands-on activities, emphasize applied learning in math, science, engineering, and history, and utilize teamwork and cooperative learning. All programs are aligned to local and national education standards. We also offer boat charters, which are perfect for birthday parties and other private functions. Passengers can help the crew, take the wheel, participate in science activities, or simply enjoy the beautiful scenery.

For information on our Baltimore programs please contact Kelly Drake via email at kdrake@livingclassrooms.org or by phone at 410-685-0295 x228. For information on our DC programs please contact Rachel Nichols via email at rnichols@livingclassroomsdc.org or by phone at 202-488-0627 x243.

Living Classrooms Foundation has provided unique hands-on, interdisciplinary and environmental education programs aboard historic ships and on land since 1985. These dynamic, "learning by doing" programs emphasize applied learning in math, science, social studies, language arts, and social skills. The programs serve students from a variety of backgrounds and economic means and range in length from one-day expeditions for school and youth groups to extended shipboard and land/sea programs. Participants see how academic skills are used in the real world. Leadership and teamwork are key objectives as students work together to raise and lower sails, trawl for marine life, perform scientific tests, and explore the commerce, history, natural resources, and ecosystems of the Chesapeake Bay.
