Are you interested in speaking with local marine scientists about how to incorporate scientific research in the classroom? This year the Duke University Marine Lab, UNC Institute of Marine Science, East Carolina University, and the NC Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores are collaborating to present the 6th Annual SciREN Coast event. This event will bring K-12 STEM teachers and informal educators together with marine science researchers from various universities and institutions across eastern North Carolina. We have new researchers presenting this year, so if you have attended in the past there will be new lesson plans available.

The SciREN Coast networking event promises to be an evening of relaxed conversations between educators and researchers. It is a FREE event. At SciREN events, researchers provide educators with K-12 classroom ready lesson plans, which are based on their current work and adhere to state and national educational standards. The event will be held at the NC Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores. Additionally, SciREN gives researchers and educators opportunities to arrange classroom visits and to collaborate on curriculum development.
