LEARN NC was a program of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Education from 1997 – 2013. It provided lesson plans, professional development, and innovative web resources to support teachers, build community, and improve K-12 education in North Carolina. Learn NC is no longer supported by the School of Education – this is a historical archive of their website.

For the past 25 years, UNC-Wilmington has provided ocean education and marine environmental education programs for school groups, all of which are correlated to the North Carolina Standard Course of Study. The Marine Explorers and Coastal Encounters programs are designed for teachers to bring their students to the UNCW Center for Marine Science (CMS). Programs are tailored to the age of the students. These include salt marsh expeditions, boat trips on the research vessel The Cape Fear, beach studies, lectures and hands-on lab work.

"MarineQuest also has Coast to Classroom programs which are designed to bring a taste of the NC coast to school classrooms. MarineQuest instructors bring a selection of local animals, give a short presentation about the areas in which they are found and their adaptations, and field questions about the ocean from students."

MarineQuest is located at the UNCW Center for Marine Science, 5600 Marvin Moss Lane, in Wilmington, North Carolina. For more information, contact MarineQuest at 910-962-2386 or marinequest@uncw.edu.
