ISEA’s Schoolship program is for students from 4th–12th grade. Students come onboard and participate in a three and a half (3.5) hour hands-on Great Lakes ecology experience, designed to promote stewardship of the Great Lakes. Our Schoolship instructors are trained by ISEA staff and become proficient in a learning station (no experience is necessary). Instructors guide students in small groups as they rotate through stations and discover the wonders of the Great Lakes. Our sailing season is mid-May through mid-October. Spring and Fall are dedicated to school groups, while the summer programs are open to the general public.

As a Schoolship instructor volunteer, you will:

· Assist students as they rotate through stations, learning about plankton, benthos, fish, water chemistry, microplastics, and seamanship
· Share information about Inland Seas with participants

These courses will teach you everything you need to know to be an instructor aboard the schoolship!

If you are interested in becoming a Schoolship volunteer or have any questions, please contact ISEA’s Volunteer Coordinator Tom Maynard at (231) 271-3077.
