About the Course
Explore the historical, economical and environmental aspects of Great Lakes shipping at the “head of the lakes.” Based in Duluth, participants will tour the Duluth-Superior harbor, Minnesota north shore, and meet with industry to better understand the various cargoes shipped, and how it is managed and regulated. The institute will provide unique learning experiences and the opportunity to share with fellow educators. The goal of the Institute is to provide participating teachers with a foundation in maritime transportation---history, current operations, and future challenges.

2006 participants had this to say:
"The field trips were powerful!"
"Daily presentations were awesome."
"The institute helped me understand the way maritime transportation works and how it fits into our life."
"I was impressed with the wide variety of site visits that included all facets of the shipping industry from the arrival of goods by rail and port safety, to the shipping of goods to other Great Lake ports and global destinations."
