HOUGHTON — General Motors is sponsoring educational boat trips on Lake Superior this summer for Michigan school students in grades 4-12.

The guided explorations of Lake Superior and its tributaries will be on Michigan Technological University’s research vessel, the Agassiz.

They will be conducted by faculty from Michigan Tech’s Great Lakes Research Center.

The program is called “Ride the Waves with GM.”

Four explorations are scheduled. Each will be offered three or four times. They include:
• Aquatic food web and GLRC laboratory investigation, grades 4-6.
• Mine waste remediation tour and Torch Lake restoration, grades 7-8.
• Investigation with remotely operated vehicle (ROV), grades 9-10.
• Lake Superior’s Ring of Fire, grades 11-12.

All “Ride the Waves with GM” programs are free, but advance registration is required.
