K-12 | May 2021

This web resources includes a compilation of lesson plans for grades K - 12 about coastal and estuarine ecology that are intended to complement programs that involve schools in local wetland restoration projects.

Data | April 2021

This resource includes two related databases that include a range of water quality parameters measured at stormwater outfalls in Beaufort, NC.

K-12 | February 2021

This series of field and classroom-based experiments allows middle school students explore the problem of microplastics.

K-12 | February 2021

This lesson plan will introduce high school AP Environmental Science students to the concepts of sunscreen runoff and the implications it can have on nature. Students will apply sunscreen water to classroom plants and then draw conclusions about the ecological impactshttps://sciren.org/.
