ASHS Geospatial Technology Students Earn State Recognition
Across the U.S., high school and middle school students are exploring their world and creating interesting map products with ArcGIS Online (ArcGIS Onlne is a complete, cloud-based mapping platform). Esri now challenges students to create and share maps about something in their home states, working to be among the best in the school, state, and nation. The ArcGIS Online US School Competition 2017 was open to high school (gr.9-12) and middle school (gr.4-8) students in the U.S who can analyze, interpret, and present data via an ArcGIS Online presentation, web app, or story map.
Lead by Dr. Penny Carpenter, All Saints High School Technology Director and Geospatial Technology teacher, ASHS submitted three projects and all three received state recognition placing in the top five in the Texas ArcGIS Online Map Contest 2017. The students’ work will be submitted to the ArcGIS Online School National Competition by Esri. Five of our High School students have an opportunity to be selected to compete at the national level in San Diego, CA on July 8-11th at the Esri’s Education GIS Conference.
Congratulations to the following students:
Individual, Katie Bayouth – “Missing People in Texas”
Team, Alexandra Shropshire and Laela Tello – “Texas Attractions”
Team, Kate King and Ella Moran – “Millennial Coffee Behavior”
Esri will select one national high school winner to attend Esri’s Education GIS Conference in San Diego, CA on July 8-11, 2017. At the conference, national winners will showcase their map in the main Map Gallery.
