Our programs are tailored to your interests and the questions of students. We include photo and video clips and live chats about our projects on Lake Superior--testing the water, trolling for microplastics, and searching for invasive species like zebra mussels and spiny water fleas. Webinars are 30-40 minutes for K-5 students and can be up to 60 minutes for older students.
Every program will draw students into life aboard Amicus II, inside the cabin and out on deck, out on passage and nestled in an anchorage. We have enjoyed engaging thousands of students in person and our virtual events are similarly interactive and fun.
We utilize Zoom to host live virtual classroom events and large-group assemblies. If your students are learning from home they can participate using a computer, cell phone, or tablet connected to wifi.

Would you like us to visit your school? Since 2014 we have sailed to just about every port on Lake Superior and visited thousands of students and teachers. We would love to visit your school and bring you down to our boat for a tour!
