Welcome to Our Special Project:
An Inter-regional Approach to Youth Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) Education
Produced under a 2015-2016 grant from the Wisconsin Environmental Educational Board (WEEB)
A total of 105 students (4 classrooms) from Ashland and Oneida Counties participated in the project, which began in July 2015 and ended December 2016. Here are a few of the project highlights:
- 105 students from Ashland and Oneida Counties participated
- Provided students with AIS education and reinforced AIS awareness
- Students gained increased learning in science, geography, and technology
- Students were empowered to become part of the solution to prevent the spread of AIS
- Two field events took place, introducing students from Rhinelander and Mellen to each other and to their regional-specific AIS issues.
- Field events provided on-shore and on-water learning stations and fostered critical thinking
- Use of technology during field events broadened students learning experiences
- A unique and non-traditional partnership was created
“An Inter-regional Approach to Youth Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) Education” was produced under a 2015-2016 grant from the WEEB.
