Upcoming workshop helps Indiana teachers bring buoy data into the classroom

Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant and Purdue University are offering a teacher workshop on incorporating Lake Michigan buoy data into their lessons and activities. 

The workshop is open to Indiana math, science, and geography teachers in grades 8-12, and will provide them with ways to incorporate real-time data in the curriculum. From lessons on in-lake processes, to emerging environmental and climate issues impacting the lakes, to problem solving activities and more, the data from IISG’s nearshore Lake Michigan buoy can be used to cover a wide range of topics. 

Applications for the workshop should be submitted by January 10 and should indicate which of the available dates are preferred – January 25 or February 15.
