Area educators to present projects at UT Lake Erie Center

Twenty teachers from across Ohio and Michigan have spent the week at The University of Toledo Lake Erie Center studying water quality testing and the potential causes of harmful algal blooms on Lake Erie.

The participants, educators of grades 4-12 grade, will present their projects beginning at 1 p.m., today (Friday, July 31) at the UT Lake Erie Center, 6200 Bayshore Rd. in Oregon.

The Students and Teachers Exploring Local Landscapes to Interpret the Earth from Space (SATELLITES) Summer Teaching Institute leads teachers in the areas of science, social studies, geography and technology through the process of engaging their students in projects using The Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE) Program.

During the summer institute, participants have learned about water quality issues, water quality observation techniques and geospatial technology applications including the use of geographic information systems (GIS) and global positioning systems (GPS).

The SATELLITES Institute is part of a collaboration between UT, OhioView, NASA and The GLOBE Program.
