North Carolina stretches from mountains to the sea and is known for its natural beauty, diverse topography, and incredible biodiversity. North Carolina is also home to many museums and science centers in communities across the state, where exhibits and programs provide scientific and nature-based learning experiences for people of all ages. In an effort to bring awareness and increased accessibility to these many resources in our state, our non-profit, In Situ Explorers, has partnered with 63 science education venues to create a digital science guidebook for residents and visitors. We want to engage people of all ages in the exploration of NC's varied science landscape. Join me to learn about the launch of the North Carolina Science Trail, how we can help you find incredible opportunities across the state, and our goals to expand into a one-stop online shop for science and nature experiences in North Carolina.

Presenter: April C. Smith

In 2015, April started the non-profit, In Situ Explorers, which aims to share the wonders of science and nature with everyone by providing interesting and fun ideas for outdoor science exploration. In 2020, she enlisted over 30 NC scientists, researchers, and naturalist to help publish a book through UNC Press entitled "30 Great NC Science Adventures," which shared 30 exciting science and nature-based experiences all across the state. April has taught classes on the importance of wetlands and environmental microbiology, as well as seminars on how to explore outdoors with kids and experiencing awe through science and nature. The creation of the NC Science Trail is her most recent adventure. It launches in April 2023 as part of the NC Science Festival and NC's Year of the Trail.
