Skulls added to NCLOR from NC School of Science and Math

NCSSM Logo The North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics now has a dedicated resource series within the NCLOR. The Distance Education and Extended Programs (DEEP) division serves as the outreach arm of the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics (NCSSM). It is a leader in distance education providing a full range of educational opportunities and high quality resources to teachers and K-12 students across North Carolina.

This series of resources will grow but for now it includes graphics and interactive animations. Videos, lesson plans, and professional development materials are planned for the future. The first content made available is a group of 67 resources dedicated to the study of hominid skulls in biology.
