Instead, graduate students from the Institute of Marine Sciences in Morehead City offered a unique, hands-on lesson about our coastal ecology.&nbsp; Tiller School third grader Jack McMann.</p> Fri, 14 Jun 2013 16:13:26 +0000 Jared Brumbaugh 16449 at http://publicradioeast.org A New Program Puts Coastal Scientist In the Classrooms of Local Schools
