The Western Upper Peninsula Center for Science, Mathematics and Environmental Education focused its Great Lakes stewardship efforts in the five western counties of Michigan's Upper Peninsula: Houghton, Baraga, Keweenaw, Gogebic, and Ontonagon. The Center worked closely with the other five math/science centers in the Upper Peninsula to share strategies, resources, and professional development opportunities in order to facilitate their future engagement in this effort.
The Western Upper Peninsula encompasses 19 school districts, two intermediate school districts (Copper Country ISD and Gogebic-Ontonagon ISD), and two tribal communities: Keweenaw Bay Indian Community and Lac Vieux Desert Band of Chippewa.
