Teacher Resources

Our education department “brings to life” the concepts you introduce in your classroom. We address a wide range of environmental and marine science topics and can customize any of our programs to fit your curriculum needs.

All of our programs are linked to national science standards and RI Grade Span Expectations.

Professional Development

We offer professional development for educators, including the Bay Institute for Experiential Learning (for all educators) and our very popular Project Narragansett (for Providence teachers).

Guide to Narragansett Bay Field Experiences

We have created the Save The Bay Guide to Narragansett Bay Field Experiences for teachers to download. As a companion piece to our education programs, this Guide provides background information on all our educational offerings and includes pre- and post-program classroom activities as well as Narragansett Bay reference materials. The Guide is divided into sections below. Download some or all of them at your leisure.

*Please note:  Be sure to access the Johnson & Wales University Harborside Campus through the main entrance on Harborside Blvd. Your GPS may suggest taking Ernest Street to JWU’s Shipyard Street entrance, but that route requires a key card for entry.  

From Route I-95 North or South, take Exit 18 (Thurbers Avenue). Head downhill on Thurbers Avenue to US Route 1A (Allens Avenue). Turn right onto Allens Ave. Continue southbound on Allens Ave. into Cranston, where Allens Ave. becomes Narragansett Blvd. Turn left onto Harborside Blvd. at the traffic light by the Shell gas station. Follow Harborside Blvd. through the Johnson & Wales Harborside Campus. At the end of Harborside Blvd., turn right onto Save The Bay Drive. Save The Bay Drive becomes a circular, one-way roadway as you approach the Bay Center. Parking is available in four guest lots after you pass the main building. Enter the building through the main entrance.
