Classes are conducted aboard tall ships and complement traditional classroom studies in ecology, history, geography, geology, biology, chemistry and meteorology. Students learn through hands-on experiences. The knowledge gained through these experiences provides the leadership, understanding and commitment needed for the long-term stewardship of the Great Lakes. Over 52,000 students have already participated in ISEA's shipboard programs, which are taught by 150 trained volunteer instructors and ISEA's professional staff. ISEA’s educational program will soon include a fleet of small boats docked at the Inland Seas Education Center, ISEA’s new waterfront facility in Suttons Bay. The Education Center will also be home to the newly created Lee Endowment for Global Freshwater. The LEGF will help develop innovative, practical methods to provide people throughout the world with an adequate freshwater supply. (LakeNet Program Participant)
