Seventh grade participants collect zoo plankton

June 10, 2010
Seventh grade participants collect zoo plankton through a hole in the ice as part of the North Temperate Lakes Schoolyard Long Term Ecological Research (SLTER) Program. SLTER is a sub-program of the North Temperate Lakes LTER, an NSF-supported program administered by the University of Wisconsin-Madison that studies the ecology of seven lakes in northern Wisconsin and four in southern Wisconsin, as well as their surrounding landscapes. The Schoolyard LTER provides enrichment activities for elementary, middle and high school students that include field trips, classroom visits and residential academic summer camps, and professional development opportunities for elementary, middle and high school teachers such as field trips, one to two day workshops and three-week summer courses.
