Let the Teacher Resource Center Support Ocean Science in Your Classrooms!

Helping Teachers Is Our Top Priority


Since 1987, we have offered a meeting place, free consultation appointments, research assistance and access to one of the largest curriculum collections in the region and a 6,000-item collection of loan materials.


Our audience includes teachers for grades pre-K to 12 and also out-of-school instructors such as camp counselors. Most of our visitors are from New England, but they also come from around the world. Our materials can be shipped within New England, and we are happy to assist others with finding resources. You can also sign up for the latest news and updates from the TRC, including information about opportunities for professional development and project funding.
For more information, please contact us at trc@neaq.org
or 617-973-6590.
