GMRI – Getting started with Vital Signs workshop for educators

New to Vital Signs and citizen science investigations? LEA is partnering with the Gulf of Maine Research Institute (GMRI) to offer this workshop for you! Turn your students into citizen scientists with the knowledge and skills to ask their own research questions, plan an investigation, collect meaningful data, and communicate their findings to an authentic audience.


Connect with a network of peers from across the state. We will work together to conduct a Vital Signs investigation. You’ll have time to adapt what you learn to your local context, and leave with a plan of how to implement an authentic investigation back in your classroom.
