Exploris COVID Case Reporting Form (CLICK TO SEE FORM)

  • Schools are required to track data related to Covid-19 and this form will help us! This form should be completed each time you have a confirmed positive, a presumptive positive, or a need to quarantine within a household. Please complete a new form for each person impacted. Names are reported to the health department but are not published in any Exploris forum. 

Weekly Overview

  1. Please check out the Weekly Overview!

2. NCMNS Professional Previews: The NCMNS  Youth Programs team would like to invite students to join a new program called Professional Previews. These are informal conversations with researchers, professors, and other STEM professionals with the goal of being able to have these new friends as contacts in the future. There will be a range of pre-formulated questions ranging from professional to personal, and the registration form has a place for students to ask their own questions. We hope that students will un-mute and personally join the conversation as well!

The sessions will occur every Thursday from 4/15 to 7/1 at alternating starting times of 12pm and 3:30pm. The topics are listed on the registration link but keep in mind that students are able to register up to two weeks in advance. Registration is capped at 25 participants as it is pretty hard to have a conversion with more than 25 people at once! Click this link to register! https://tinyurl.com/ncmns-yp-pp

Have a good weekend!
