Coastal Science Academy


DEI’s Coastal Science Academy helps educators incorporate authentic scientific inquiry and methods into their K-12 science curriculum and increase confidence in teaching STEM subjects.  The Academy begins with an intensive, retreat-style workshop followed by project assistance throughout the school year. Teachers learn and apply DEI’s “Let’s Find Out” approach to promote student engagement in science, and encourage critical thinking and environmental stewardship.
