SWW Teacher Training: GLOW (Great Lakes One Water)
Every August, dozens of schoolteachers and other area educators sign up with TMACOG for focused training sessions on the collection and analysis of water samples. In 2020 project leader Sara Guiher will be training teachers to use a 3D-printed portable spectrometer as part of their analysis. Guiher has practiced with the techniques through GLOW (Great Lakes One Water). GLOW is a group of seven communities around Lake Erie that are focusing on smart citizen science. TMACOG will partner with Metroparks Toledo to provide leadership and tools for citizen science in the western basin region.
