The following text was provided by Iosco County News-Herald:

LANSING – The Michigan Science Teachers Association (MSTA) has chosen Michigan State University Extension educator Brandon Schroeder of Lincoln as its 2017 Informal Science Educator of the Year. 

Schroeder, as part of the Michigan Sea Grant team, serves as Northeast Michigan district extension educator for northern Lake Huron coastal communities. In addition to his valuable work involving fisheries science, biodiversity conservation, sustainable coastal tourism and working with communities to apply science-based knowledge to address Great Lakes issues, he is a passionate proponent of science education and Great Lakes literacy. The work he has been doing for years aligns perfectly to the state of Michigan’s new K-12 science standards – another benefit for teachers learning and working with him.

As part of the Northeast Michigan Great Lakes Stewardship Initiative (NEMIGLSI), a regional place-based stewardship education initiative, Schroeder works with area schools fostering school-community partnerships, providing professional development for educators, and supporting youth in implementing stewardship projects.
