Sound Reflections:
APNEP's 30th Anniversary 2017

Telling the Albemarle-Pamlico National Estuary Partnership Story

The United States Congress designated the Albemarle-Pamlico estuarine system an "estuary of national significance" in 1987. That same year, the Albemarle-Pamlico Estuarine Study (APES) was among the first of 28 National Estuary Programs established by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) through amendments to the Clean Water Act. To help commemorate our 30th Anniversary, we are highlighting the history of APNEP by featuring our partners-past and present-throughout 2017.

A fresh take on the region's salty affairs

Celebrating Five Years of SciREN Coast

By: Alexandria G. Hounshell, Graduate Student, Institute of Marine Sciences,
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, February 6, 2017

2017 marks the 5th anniversary of the Scientific Research and Education Network (SciREN) in coastal North Carolina. SciREN is an annual networking event that brings local eastern North Carolina researchers and educators together to bring real world science into the classroom. SciREN was originally started by two University of North Carolina (UNC) Institute of Marine Sciences graduate students Justin Ridge and Ethan Theuerkauf. Both Justin and Ethan had parents who were educators, and were acutely aware of the challenges of bringing exciting, hands-on science into the classroom. 

Event Details:

Who: All Eastern North Carolina Educators
What: 5th Annual SciREN Coast Networking Event
When: February 16, 2017 from 5:45 – 8 pm
Where: Pine Knoll Shores Aquarium
Why: Bring coastal science into the classroom!
Cost: FREE

Register: Here!

 

Scientists participating in SciREN Networking events generate classroom ready lesson plans about their research that incorporate current national and state education standards. Prior to the networking event, scientists participate in a Lesson Plan workshop where they learn how to develop a lesson plan and talk with a panel of educators who provide feedback on lesson plan ideas. This results in top-notch lesson plans that can be adapted to any classroom.
