Sea Grant Develops Great Lakes Teaching Tools

Posted: Updated:

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - Michigan Sea Grant has teamed with university and government experts to develop two online tools that can help educate people about the Great Lakes.

One is called Teaching Great Lakes Science. It's a website offering lessons, related activities and data sets. They can be woven easily into existing curriculum and cover a range of topics, including climate and weather, lake effect snow and ice cover, food webs and native fish.

The other tool is FieldScope, a web-based mapping, analysis and visualization tool hosted by the National Geographic Society.

It can be used to investigate subjects like water quality or fish spawning grounds. Users can explore rivers and streams, watershed boundaries, water depth, elevation and land cover. They can upload their own field data and compare it with material from elsewhere.
