GLIN==> Invasive Species Research Program for High School students July 2-3, 2008



Join the Inland Seas Education Association for the Invasive Species Research Program on July 2-3, 2008 in Grand Traverse Bay! The Invasive Species Research Program has been developed to teach high school students about current research related to invasive species in the Great Lakes Region and ways to help reduce the introduction and spread of new invasive species.

 

The 2-day Invasive Species Research Program will provide the unique experience of hands-on sampling aboard ISEA’s schooner Inland Seas. Participants will learn and practice sampling techniques, methods for analyzing scientific samples, and experimental design for invasive species research projects. Course participants will also have the opportunity to interact with scientists, mariners, and educators with a common interest in this critical issue.

 

Selected participants for the Invasive Species Research Program will participate free of charge and receive complimentary meals and lodging while aboard the schooner.
