Research Transfer

Lesson plan development

Duke’s Community Science Team collaborates with researchers at the Duke Marine Lab to create original lesson plans. Marine Debris and Water Quality lesson plans can be found under Online Teacher Resources. These lesson plans and activities within them are used in local schools and clubs. 

SciREN Workshop

Duke’s Community Science Team partners with SciREN to offer a workshop in lesson plan design. This professional development opportunity gives you all the building blocks you need to develop your own lesson plan! This lesson plan can then be presented to NC educators and entered into SciREN’s lesson plan competition for a cash prize.

Collaboration with UNC-IMS and SciREN

The Community Science Team collaborates with UNC-IMS and SciREN to share lesson plans and aid in teacher professional development. Through partnerships, we are able to share research and help deliver outreach to a broader audience.
