Registration: Geo-Inquiries Workshop (July 30-31)

The New York Geographic Alliance and the Department of Chemistry/Geosciences of Monroe Community College are sponsoring a two-day mini-conference for teachers and informal educators on July 30th and 31st. It will be held at MCC's Brighton Campus in Rochester, NY.

The second section of the mini-conference is part of National Geographic's National Initiative, Geo-Inquiries Training. This strand is for middle school teachers interested in using GIS resources to create maps of their communities. Schools are encouraged to send teachers in pairs, so they can work on projects collaboratively with their students in the upcoming 2018-2019 school year. There will be demonstrations from teachers who have been trained by Nat Geo in 2017 in Washington, DC and this summer at Jackson Hole, Wyoming. There will be time alotted to collect data in the field and to use computers to create maps while on the MCC campus.
