School Programs

Providing educational opportunities for students is a high priority for the sanctuary. K-12 programs include plenty of free exhibits to discover at the Great Lakes Maritime Heritage center, school field trips, classroom cruises to see shipwrecks in Thunder Bay aboard the Lady Michigan glass-bottom boat, web resources such as virtual dives, sneak peeks of the Thunder Bay International Film Festival, and the annual student underwater robotics competition. There is always something to discover!
