ExPLORE NC Teacher Institute

Each summer since 2002, APNEP has supported a summer institute for teachers focused on estuarine and water quality education.  Application materials are usually sent out in late winter and early spring, with the institute held during the summer months.  To receive information about the institute, please join the APNEP mailing list.

 

The Teacher Institute is hosted by the Trinity Center, nestled in maritime forest along the banks of Bogue Sound and a short walk from the Atlantic Ocean. Participants explore the wonders of both Sound and sea.

 The 2017 ExPLORE NC Teacher Development Program will be a year-long professional development program. 4th and 5th grade teachers, particularly those in the Tar-Pamlico Basin and other areas of the Albemarle-Pamlico region, will learn how to utilize place- and inquiry-based learning strategies that are connected to North Carolina's rivers and coasts. APNEP is helping to fund ExPLORE NC's 4-day Summer Institute, held near the North Carolina coast. Hands-on, real world, and STEM-based experiences will be emphasized during the Institute. For more information about ExPLORE NC, visit: http://ie.unc.edu/ExPLORENC/
