When Main Street School fifth-grade science teacher Marcy Burns cruised Lake Erie with the Lake Guardian from July 7 to 13, she was hardly on board for sightseeing and relaxation.

Burns worked with other educators and scientists to collect samples from the lake and studied those samples.

Burns was one of 16 educators from across the Great Lakes basin who participated in the Lake Erie Shipboard Science Workshop. The cruise aims to, among other things, connect educators with scientists. The educators are based in eight Great Lakes states: Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota.

"It was a wonderful experience and I learned a lot about the scientific research with the Great Lakes and I also learned a lot that I can take back to my classroom," Burns said.
