Teaching on the Schooner.
Our instructors teach students during their field trips. The ship is very stable so it's seldom rocking and wavy, but it's sometimes cold and rainy. This is one of the most fun jobs you can have!

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
