Cohasset’s Center for Student Coastal Research (CSCR) inspires people of all ages to explore and engage in the scientific study of the local watershed and marine environment to launch the next generation of environmental stewards.
 
CSCR continues to lead educational innovation with project-based learning, and is thrilled to help local organizations connect with teachers for enriching opportunities for students.  You can watch our July 26th Project-based Learning Summit on 143TV.
