Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant’s Robin Goettel, associate director for education, recently led a webinar for the Great Lakes Earth Partnership for Schools. With more than 20 educators participating from four Great Lakes states, the webinar offered creative strategies, information, and collaboration on getting students involved in caring for the lakes. 

From the course description: 

“Based on successful Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant projects with educators, we’ll look at model student stewardship projects that have informed their communities about critical action steps to protect waterways. Environmental issues will include reducing contaminants in waterways through sensible disposal of unwanted medicine and preventing the spread of aquatic invasive species to maintain biodiversity.”

If you missed the webinar but would like to learn more about engaging students with research and community involvement around Great Lakes issues, the presentation and Q&A session were recorded and can be viewed here.
