Weeklong Teachers Workshop to be Held on a Lake Superior Research Vessel
The University of Minnesota Sea Grant Program is looking for 15 teachers interested in participating in the Shipboard and Shoreline Science Workshop being offered through The Center for Ocean Sciences Education Excellence (COSEE) Great Lakes. The workshop will take place on the Environmental Protection Agency's research vessel, the Lake Guardian, from July 20-27.
The Shipboard and Shoreline Science Workshop is geared toward teachers working with 4th-10th grade students in the Great Lakes Basin. Non-formal educators with a Great Lakes or marine science focus are also encouraged to apply for a spot on this unique, expenses-paid, educator's cruise. Successful applicants must be willing to integrate Great Lakes and marine science into their teaching curriculum. Selected applicants will work with Great Lakes Sea Grant staff and scientists, and be eligible for graduate credits through the University of Minnesota Duluth.
