Biography

Dana Haine has been engaged in science education for over twenty years and in her role as K-12 Science Education Manager for the Environmental Resource Program (ERP), she enjoys weaving her life science expertise into her passion for educating others on critical environmental science issues. Haine’s research translation and curriculum development skills enable her to deliver cutting edge environmental science content and innovative activities to K-12 teachers, students and informal educators on topics such as epigenetics and energy. Haine also assists with the outreach and research translation efforts of two federally-funded research centers in UNC’s Gillings School of Global Public Health by sharing the scientific findings emerging from these centers with K-12 audiences and members of the general public.

Prior to joining the ERP, Haine was a science educator for DESTINY, UNC’s Traveling Science Learning Program, and she was a faculty member in the science department at Central Piedmont Community College where she taught biology.
