  10. 10. Climate change reports are noting that the lakes are heating up, what changes could this cause? Less Ice Cover Lower Water Levels Increased evaporation rates Heat waves Algae growth Impact of Invasive Species
  11. 11. How Big is a Crowd?  Layout a map of the Great Lakes.  Discover the impact of human population density on fisheries. Playing “How big is a Crowd?” with teachers in South Africa
  12. 12. Who is Sea Grant?  Sea Grant's mission is to enhance the practical use and conservation of coastal, marine and Great Lakes resources in order to create a sustainable economy and environment  Environmental stewardship, long-term economic development and responsible use of America’s coastal, ocean and Great Lakes resources are at the heart of Sea Grant’s mission.  A network of 33 Sea Grant programs in the coastal US States and territories carries out this mission through research, extension and education activities.

  14. 14. Great Lakes Literacy A Great Lakes literate citizen: • Understands the essential principles and fundamental concepts about the characteristics and functioning of the Great Lakes • Communicates accurately about the Great Lakes’ influence on systems and people in and beyond their watershed • Can make informed and responsible decisions regarding the Great Lakes and the resources of their watershed
  15. 15. Great Lakes Literacy Principles The Great Lakes, bodies of fresh water with many features, are connected to each other and to the world ocean. Natural forces formed the Great Lakes; the lakes continue to shape the features of their watershed. The Great Lakes influence local and regional weather and climate. Water makes Earth habitable; fresh water sustains life on land. The Great Lakes support a broad diversity of life and ecosystems. The Great Lakes and humans in their watersheds are inextricably interconnected. Much remains to be learned about the Great Lakes. The Great Lakes are socially, economically, and environmentally significant to the region, the nation and the planet.
  16. 16. Shipboard Science Workshop Ready for adventure? Join fellow teachers and scientists for a 7 day adventure aboard an EPA research vessel on a Great Lakes.

  22. 22. The Huffington Post | By Peter Finocchiaro Posted: 04/10/2013 3:52 pm EDT "The massive production of plastic and inadequate disposal has made plastic debris an important and constant pollutant on beaches and in oceans around the world," said Lorena M. Rios Mendoza, a University of Wisconsin-Superior scientist researching the impact of such pollution.
  23. 23. Hydrolab Hydrolab work onboard measuring • depth • pH • dissolved oxygen • temperature • turbidity • chlorophyll a • conductivity Our research team
  24. 24. Limno Loan Program  Program is partnership between Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant and US EPA-GLNPO  Hydrolab data sonde is loaned out to trained educators during school year  Students collect water quality data from local waterways with actual equipment used by scientists in the field S. Francis C. Byers

  28. 28. Sail the Denis Sullivan •Up to 45 participants •3 hour educational trip •$750 if booked for next year by March 31, 2014
  29. 29. Sharing scientific findings
  30. 30. Attack Pack The Aquatic Invaders Attack Pack is a backpack filled with materials to help teach students about Great Lakes aquatic invasive species Each pack includes:  preserved specimens of aquatic invasive species  fact sheets  a classroom guide and a USB flash drive containing 10 lesson plans. Wisconsin residents can borrow an Attack Pack for free from Wisconsin's Water Library. The Pack will be delivered to your local library via the Library Delivery Network of Wisconsin.
  31. 31. Wisconsin Water Library
  32. 32. Scientific & Engineering Practices Science and engineering require both knowledge and practice. Science is not just a body of knowledge that reflects current understanding of the world; it is also a set of practices used to establish, extend, and refine that knowledge. When students actively engage in science practices they deepen their understanding of core science ideas.
