The Schoolship program for Schools
ISEA was established in 1989 to provide aquatic science, environmental awareness and sail training classes for learners of all ages. Classes are conducted aboard tall ships to complement traditional classroom studies in ecology, history, geography, geology, biology, chemistry and meteorology. Students learn through hands on experiences. Over 25,000 students have already participated in ISEA's shipboard programs which are taught by one-hundred-fifty trained volunteer instructors and ISEA's professional staff. Members and friends support ISEA's mission of Great Lakes education with financial contributions and by volunteering as instructors, organizers, fund-raisers and office helpers. If you want to help support ISEA's mission, please consider becoming a member, volunteering your time or contributing resources, financial or material.
