Where are suitable sites for oyster restoration in NY Harbor? Learn how your students can use GIS to answer this question for free!

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are useful tools in data analysis, allowing people to answer specific questions about where things have happened, are happening, or might happen in the future.

In this free session, educators will explore how their students can use ArcGIS Online to investigate the question, where in NY Harbor could future oyster restoration take place? In this session, teachers can expect to:

Gain access to curricular resources for their classroom
Practice using GIS, mirroring what students might do in the classroom
Network with fellow teachers who are also interested in using GIS
Learn about their local marine environment – NY Harbor!

This opportunity is designed for high school educators teaching 7th to 12th grade and will be given priority to attend the training session. Community scientists and educators teaching younger age groups will be put on a waitlist upon registration, as the session is best suited for educators with an high school audience. We hope to accommodate all interested participants and appreciate your understanding and patience if you are on the waitlist!
