Partners in Education (PIE)
This partnership between Great Lakes Aquarium, Minnesota Sea Grant Program and the University of Minnesota Duluth trains volunteer educators to provide free outreach programs to Twin Ports schools. The topics covered such as weather, watersheds, properties of water and geology, change each semester and are all relevant to the Great Lakes.
Cost: FREE! to all schools in Duluth
Time: 45-60 minutes
Grade Level: K-6
FALL 2019: Outreach available October-December.
Topic: Fish in Winter
Discover how ice and snow cover can affect dissolved oxygen levels in water and why oxygen is the most important limiting factor for fish in winter. In a simulation game, students play the roles of fish attempting to survive a Minnesota winter. Students revise their behaviors just as fish do to increase their chances of survival.
