Tele Atlas and ESRI Support GIS Education - 01/04/2008


ESRI (CA, USA) and Tele Atlas (MA, USA) are working together for the sixth year in a row to offer five educators scholarships to attend the ESRI Education User Conference (EdUC). The grants awarded will give each recipient $400 for travel expenses and complimentary admission to EdUC, being held August 2-5, 2008, in San Diego, California, at the Marriott Hotel & Marina.

 

EdUC is an inspiring forum for discovering how GIS technology enhances learning and provides solutions throughout the education community. Educators, administrators, researchers, librarians, and museum professionals are invited to explore the power of spatial thinking at this one-of-a-kind event, where attendees from around the globe come to learn firsthand about GIS in education. Visitors can check out the latest technology in the hands-on computer labs and the EdUC EXPO as well as learn and share with their peers during Special Interest Group meetings and user-led presentations. EdUC is where the education community can find out everything they need to know to launch or grow GIS activities and programs.
