Coastal to Coastal: Comparative Hands-On Research Experience and Collaboration for Teachers
Date: 06/27/11 - 07/01/11

The Great Lakes WATER Institute of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and the National Science Foundation Division of Ocean Sciences offer career development and experience in Great Lakes Aquatic Sciences through a Centers for Ocean Sciences Education Excellence (COSEE) enhancement program. Teachers from all coasts will accomplish hypothesis-testing research with WATER scientists, apply concepts to standards-oriented classroom activities, and compare perspectives among the very different Great Lakes and the salty coasts. Topics and hands-on experience will encompass interdisciplinary views of aquatic sciences (e.g., chemistry, biology, physics, geology, mathematics) with discussion of social and political applications. Middle- and High-school teachers with new or developed interest in aquatic resources are encouraged to apply.
