Wednesday, November 14, 2012:  Another successful GIS Day Field Trip for 5th graders in Delaware!

This field trip provided a hands-on learning experience for nearly 280 students throughout Delaware.  Activities included the Earth Balloon, GIS Scavenger Hunt, Flight Simulator, What is GIS?,  Mapping Connections, Map Jeopardy, a hands-on GIS lesson using a weTable, along with tours of the Air Mobility Command (AMC)  Museum’s Control Tower to learn about air traffic control.

The GIS Day Committee would like to thank the volunteers which made this day such a success. From the GIS Professionals who provided the station activities to the students’ tour guides.  We’d also like to express our sincere gratitude to the AMC Museum for hosting our GIS Day event for the 5th year and their volunteer staff for staffing several stations and enriching the student’s learning experience.

This event was sponsored by Artesian Resources, DelaSoft, Esri, JMT, Tidewater Utilities, Inc. and the Dover AMC Museum – thank you for your continued support!
