AGENDA

Great Lakes Maritime Transportation & Ship-Building Teacher Institute

Teachers Go Back to School to Study Great Lakes Shipping in Northeast Wisconsin
Fourteen teachers from schools throughout the Great Lakes watershed are spending this week in Green Bay, learning about ship-building and shipping on the Great Lakes. 

The four-day teacher institute is sponsored by Michigan Technological University, the University of Wisconsin-Madison, North Coast Marine Manufacturing Alliance and Northeast Wisconsin Technical College, with funding from the National Center for Freight & Infrastructure Research & Education. 

The teachers will explore the ship-building yards that design and construct multi-million dollar yachts, U.S. Coast Guard vessels and Great Lakes freighters in Green Bay, Marinette, Sturgeon Bay and Manitowoc, Wisconsin.   Participants will visit ACE Marine, Marquis Yachts, Marinette Marine, Northeast Wisconsin Technical College’s North Coast Marine Manufacturing Training Center, the Port of Green Bay, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) weather station, Lake Michigan's Badger ferry and several maritime museums. 

Teachers who complete the course will earn 2 graduate credits from Michigan Tech and develop lessons to share with their students. 

To arrange an interview or photo op with the teachers, please contact course coordinator, Joan Chadde at 906-369-1121.
