Eleven educators from the Great Lakes region were selected and are set to sail on Lake Superior beginning June 27 through July 1, 2022. Minnesota Sea Grant Environmental Literacy Extension Educator Marte Kitson will be leading the workshop and providing participating educators with curricula and resources that they can take home and use in their classrooms and other teaching environments.
