Teacher Professional Development

GSLI promotes science and environmental education of K–12 students and actively links the research sector with public outreach. We support field trips, summer camps, teacher training, and curriculum development centered on GSL. The goal of these activities is to develop critical thinking skills and inspire stewardship among the next generation. High school programs were supported by the Utah State Workforce Innovation in Regional Economic Development (WIRED) initiative, which is underwritten by the U.S. Department of Labor. GSLI serves to connect all of these parties in education and, ultimately, workforce opportunities regarding this unique lake.
