The Outreach Coordinator & Informal Educator Section promotes the public understanding of biology and the life sciences by supporting outreach coordinators, informal educators and others involved in biology education outside the traditional classroom setting. The section serves as a resource for the community by providing venues for communication, mentoring, and professional development at the NABT Professional Development Conference.
Every year, thousands of students and teachers benefit from unique learning opportunities designed by “teachers without classrooms.” At zoos and museums, science centers and field stations, and universities and scientific societies, outreach coordinators and informal educators complement traditional learning environments, enhance learning, engage students and support teachers. To better serve this community of biology educators, NABT has created the Outreach Coordinator & Informal Educator Member Section.
