Some examples include professional development for faculty and staff, no-cost lab and college classroom visits, hands-on vertical alignment PD hosted at the college for middle and high school educators, individualized assistance with equipment or grant acquisition, curriculum materials, and more.

Classroom Visits

Our coordinators will come to your life science classes and deliver an engaging hands-on lab experience tailored to your curriculum. We have class sets of equipment and a variety of lessons that put a fresh spin on traditional laboratory exercises.

Professional Development

We offer a variety of professional development opportunities for college instructors and middle/high school educators. These opportunities can include content-specific activities, pedagogical methods, team-building, and soft-skills reinforcement. PD workshops for middle- and high school educators or counselors hosted at your institution can bring opportunities for vertical alignment and promotion of your specific programs. View our current professional development opportunities, or request a PD today! If you'd like us to customize an event for your school, please contact us directly at engage@ncbionetwork.org.

If you are a member of the biology faculty, consider joining NC3ABI, an organization meant to continuously improve biology instruction at two-year institutions and foster fellowship and communication among NC community college biology faculty. All full time and part-time biology faculty are invited to attend annual regional and statewide events.
