2024 Shipboard Science Workshop on Lake Erie

12:00 pm, Sun January 28, 2024 – Educators from across the Great Lakes are invited to apply for a once-in-a-lifetime, free opportunity to live aboard an EPA research vessel to assist scientists and bring the Great Lakes back to their classrooms

Apply today for the 2024 Shipboard Science Workshop aboard US EPA’s R/V Lake Guardian on Lake Erie!

Formal and nonformal 5th-12th grade educators from across the Great Lakes’ states are invited to apply to join the Center for Great Lakes Literacy (CGLL) and Great Lakes scientists for a once-in-a-lifetime, free opportunity to live aboard an EPA research vessel to assist scientists and bring the Great Lakes back to their classrooms! The workshop is July 7-13, 2024. Deadline for applications is Feb. 19, 2024.

Through a partnership with the US EPA Great Lakes National Program Office, and funding from NOAA’s Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, educators will spend a full week alongside researchers aboard the US EPA R/V Lake Guardian. Hosts for the Lake Erie workshop are CGLL partners Ohio Sea Grant and Pennsylvania Sea Grant educators.

The Shipboard Science Workshops rotate among the five Great Lakes and are designed to promote Great Lakes sciences while forging lasting relationships between Great Lakes researchers and educators. CGLL is a collaborative effort led by Sea Grant educators throughout the U.S. Great Lakes watershed. CGLL fosters informed and responsible decisions that advance basin-wide stewardship by providing hands-on experiences, educational resources, and networking opportunities promoting Great Lakes literacy among an engaged community of educators, scientists, and youth.
