The Regional Marine Science Project of the Carteret County, North Carolina, Public Schools. Experiments in the Use of Field Ecology as an Approach to Understanding Coastal Environments.
The development of the Regional Marine Science Project in Carteret County, North Carolina, is portrayed in this booklet. Established with Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Title III funds in 1966, the project has evolved from one high school course in marine ecology to numerous courses and activities at all levels, primary through college. Oriented to field ecology as an approach to understanding coastal environments, the project makes extensive use of field trips, setting up discovery-type situations with complex problems for group investigation. Phases of the program are described in eight categories: curriculum development and instruction, research on field trip techniques, inservice training, summer science school, marine science library and audio-visual aids, publications, regional coordination of marine science education, and planning for an exhibit, laboratory and field trip center. An array of pictures depict many of the student activities. In addition, staff photos and biographies are included. This work was prepared under an ESEA Title III contract. (BL)
