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 assist scientists and bring the Great Lakes back to their classrooms!

The week-long scientific exploration of Lake Erie will take place July 7-13, 2024, providing educators with a hands-on opportunity to explore microplastics, phytoplankton, benthic organisms, sediment, and other Lake Erie-specific topics while living and working alongside Great Lakes scientists on a vessel conducting critical research. This is truly an amazing opportunity for educators.

Deadline for applications is February 19, 2024.

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

Detailed information is available online at the CGLL website.
