Field Experience for Teachers
Get out of the classroom and into the field! SC DNR and the ACE Basin NERR offer a variety of field experience opportunities for k-12 educators teaching in SC’s coastal counties. Field Experience for Teachers is based on the national program NOAA Teachers at Sea. Teachers participating in the program are paired with a group of scientist for field excursions ranging from single day trips to week long cruises. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The Carolina Coastal Discovery participates in the annual Seeds to Shoreline professional development workshop in partnership with SC Sea Grant Consortium, SCORE and Clemson Extension. The workshop is free and is designed to introduce educators to the importance of the estuary and salt marsh ecosystems.
