PUTTING THE SPATIAL INTO SCIENCE
The GIS in the science classroom course has been designed to provide an accessible and achievable approach for science teachers who are interested in introducing the technology of Geographic Information Systems into their teaching. While GIS has been primarily used in Geography classes around the world this workshop will show that many of the skills and techniques provided by GIS technology can be successfully applied to the study of science.
GIS is a wonderful learning tool to enhance Science education, with the bonus outcome of making students aware of GIS technology and the related employment opportunities.
ACHIEVABLE GIS IN SCIENCE STARTERS
