About ISEA School Programs

Inland Seas Education Association offers a variety of options for schools to introduce their students to hands-on learning on and around the Great Lakes. In the three-hour Schoolship programs, students become scientists for the day and assist professional staff and seasoned volunteer instructors with the collection and analysis of Great Lakes samples. ROV Engineer and Explore programs extend student learning onshore and can be used as stand-alone programs or in conjunction with a Schoolship program. Watershed Exploration programs connect students with the Great Lakes by exploring watersheds, exposing youth to Great Lakes careers, and gaining experience with technology and skills used in the field. For schools coming from greater distances, a 40-bed on-site dormitory space is available. Book your next field trip today!
