GLIN==> 2004 Great Lakes Student Summit - May 13-14, Buffalo, NY

The 2004 Great Lakes Student Summit: An Authentic Learning Experience!


The Great Lakes Student Summit is a two-day event that will be held at the
University at Buffalo May 13-14. The Summit provides an excellent
opportunity for students in grades 5 – 9 and their teachers to share
environmental education ideas and projects. Any teacher who is involved
with a group of students with a strong interest in science, energy, or the
environment is encouraged to participate.

Students will attend workshops related to energy conservation, water
quality issues, and other environmental topics with students and teachers
from throughout the Great Lakes Basin. They will also travel to Niagara
Falls to visit and learn about the awesome power of water, visit the
Aquarium of Niagara, and the Niagara Power Project Visitors Center. In
addition, they will take part in an educational cruise aboard the Niagara
Clipper. Student groups are encouraged to share an environmental or Great
Lakes related exhibit, or make a presentation, but it is not mandatory.

The cost of the GLSS is $50 per student, which includes lunches and snacks,
transportation for field trip sites, workshops, and one table for project
sharing.  This fee is based on a minimum of 150 participants and does not
include transportation to and from the University at Buffalo or the Erie
Basin Marina on Friday.

If you would like to speak with a teacher who has had first hand rewarding
experiences with previous Great Lakes Student Summit events, contact Gail
Hall at ghall@westseneca.wnyric.org or call her at 716-649-2877.
