The application period for Jennette’s Pier’s Aquarium Scholars program is underway for teachers in North Carolina’s Title I schools.

The Aquarium Scholars program is an educational outreach opportunity that connects students with exciting hands-on STEM programs. Teachers can apply for mini-grants to fund outreach programming, field trips to Jennette’s Pier or distance learning sessions that bring the North Carolina coast right to their classrooms.

The deadline to sign up is Sept. 15. The Aquarium Scholars program was developed by the nonprofit North Carolina Aquarium Society in partnership with private donors across the state, the three aquariums, (Fort Fisher, Pine Knoll Shores and Roanoke Island) and Jennette’s Pier in Nags Head, NC public schools and the Friday Institute at N. C. State University.

The program seeks to provide underserved students in North Carolina’s Title I schools access to ocean science, technology, engineering and math. “We would love to visit your students or have them visit Jennette’s Pier!” said Education curator Christin Brown. Find out more at ncaquariums.com.
