NC Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores

Here is an upcoming opportunity at the NC Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores the evening of February 20, 2014.


The Scientific Research and Education Network (SciREN) event is an annual workshop that aims to connect local marine and environmental scientists with K-12 teachers from across North Carolina. This networking event allows teachers to obtain classroom-ready exercises from scientists that help bring local research to the classroom while meeting NC Essential Standards. The event last year was a great success wherein 25 scientists and over 60 teachers from across North Carolina and Virginia came together to exchange ideas on science in the classroom.
The 2nd annual SciREN event will be held on February 20th at the Aquarium starting at 5:30 PM and registration is now live on the aquarium website!  Here is the link to the online registration form:

Limited lodging opportunities are available for little to no cost so please let the event organizers (see below) know if you are interested in lodging options.
