Students visiting the Duke University Marine Lab

The Duke University Marine Lab (DUML) Community Science Initiative was designed to increase community engagement through scientific research. Founded in 2017, the goal of the initiative is to increase meaningful opportunities for local schools, the general public and DUML to engage through public participation in research. The Community Science Initiative connects K-12 students and educators to research going on at Duke through programs and outreach events conducted by researchers, graduate and undergraduate students, and volunteers.
