The University of North Carolina’s Institute of Marine Sciences, East Carolina University and the Duke University Marine Lab are holding a workshop to bring K-12 teachers together with over 50 local marine and environmental scientists.  The third annual Scientific Research and Education Network event will provide educators with lesson plans on the most current research available.  SciREN is the brainchild of Ph.D candidates Justin Ridge and Ethan Theuerkauf.  Jared Brumbaugh spoke with both of them about the upcoming event.
