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.
