GIS Educators Day is a full-day conference devoted exclusively to the use of GIS and other geospatial technologies in K-12, college, and informal education. This year the conference will run on October 20th at the Sunday River Resort in Newry, ME.  It will focus on how geospatial technology can be used to support citizen science initiatives to monitor and improve our planet's health.


After attending, you will be able to use and apply the skills, tools, and resources learned to engage your students in real-world geospatial data collection, data analysis, and data visualization projects that will help increase their understanding, preservation, and protection of the planet.
