Esri’s Middle and High School Map Competition: IT’S NOT TOO LATE!
Have you considered having your students enter the Esri Middle/High School Map Competition? There’s still time to register to participate in this year’s competition.
What’s holding you back?
Unsure of how to add one more thing to do during the school day?
Feeling bogged down by the required curriculum or meeting standards?
Need a refresher or introduction to the ArcGIS Online or StoryMaps software?
Need an idea for a topic?
Not sure what subject you need to teach in order to submit projects?
Don’t have the organizational account?
Forgot where to find the information and forms?
Don’t know the requirements or how it will be judged?
This meet-up will get you started and answer the questions above. Many, many projects are not started until mid to late March – or even until April. Fabulous prizes await your students!
And we won’t only be talking about the competition. We will include a refresher of how to access and develop a StoryMap, as well as how to add maps into the StoryMap narrative.
Take a chance – learn how to involve your students in a learning challenge! Or even if not interested in a competition, join us to learn more about storytelling through maps.
There is no cost to attend, but please consider donating to support our GSC GIS Teacher Meet-Up and other Geographic Society of Chicago programming.
Don't forget you can visit the GSC website 24/7 at geographicsociety.org.
