Educating students about invasive species

Educating students about invasive species

DESCRIPTION

Educating students about invasive species can serve the dual purpose of meeting science content and science and engineering practices requirements for Michigan Science Standards and protecting the Great Lakes from new invasive species. A new state-wide project co-led by Wayne State University, Michigan Technological University, and the Belle Isle Conservancy will provide workshops for educators (http://sun.science.wayne.edu/~jram/MISGPworkshopRegistration.html) and internet-based activities (http://detroitaquarium.weebly.com/kids-corner.html) for incorporating invasive species into classroom curricula.
