While out on the lakes collecting samples, scientists visit classrooms virtually and talk with students about aquatic science, water quality monitoring, careers, and life on a ship.
With the pandemic continuing to affect the United States, traditional education has turned toward at-home learning and virtual classrooms to keep students safe.
