Real Stories in Research: The Lake Superior Edition, is the next opportunity offered through the Great Lakes Aquarium's Science Institute for Educators partnership. The series is geared for people working with grades K-12 in formal, informal, and non-formal settings who want to incorporate Great Lakes science into their lessons. Participants that attend at least five of the six workshops will be eligible to shadow a scientist in the field. The workshop will also include access to teaching kits, lesson plans and activities.

This year's Science Institute for Educators partnership involves the Great Lakes Aquarium, Minnesota Department of Natural Resources MinnAqua Program, Wolf Ridge Environmental Learning Center and Minnesota Sea Grant. This project was funded in part by the Coastal Zone Management Act, NOAA's Office of Ocean and Coastal Resources Management, in cooperation with Minnesota's Lake Superior Coastal Program.
