“EXPEDITION CHESAPEAKE” SEEKING VOLUNTEERS FOR COOPERSTOWN KAYAK TRIP: “Expedition Chesapeake” is a unique and comprehensive edutainment experience intended to develop a multi-faceted project that will immerse people in the past, present, and future of the Chesapeake Bay watershed by creating a large format 3D film, a made-for-television documentary series, a hands-on 4D science exhibit, and online, educational materials designed to engage middle- and high-school students. Creators are using the power of large format to capture the natural beauty of this watershed while also making a direct link between our daily lives and its long-term health.
