Aquaculture Teacher Workshop 2023

February 3rd, 12 p.m. - February 4th, 4:30 p.m.

Lake Superior State University
Sault Ste Marie, MI

Thank you for your interest in this event! Aquaculture is a powerful teaching tool and this workshop will equip science teachers to have a baseline understanding of aquaculture and aquaponics. The workshop will include tours of aquaculture facilities at LSSU and nearby along with information on how to run a successful aquaponics set up, and information on how to utilize aquaculture and aquaponics in the classroom. There will be several hands on labs throughout the event and teachers will walk away with a free small scale aquaponics system that we will build as part of the workshop. Teachers will also receive a $500 stipend that can be used for travel or classroom equipment.
