On the Right Track
December 1, 9am-3pm, Chandler
An important aspect of managing wildlife is to understand where the animals are and how they use their habitat. Biologists have been tracking wildlife since the beginning. As technology improves, so does the method of tracking. However, the results are the same: better data to help us better manage. Join us for an exciting educator professional development opportunity where we will explore the different methods that biologists use to track wildlife and how we use that information. Participants will learn have the opportunity to become biologists as they engage in a number of classroom-friendly simulations to track wildlife and analyze that data.

Story Maps for the Classroom
January 12-13, Phoenix
Geographic Information System, otherwise known as GIS, is an incredibly powerful tool that is used in all aspects of life. Through the use of interactive, web-based maps, GIS allows for in-depth analysis on just about any topic. Story Maps add to the power of GIS by allowing you to combine maps with narrative text, images, and multimedia content. Join us for an engaging educator professional development opportunity focused on Story Maps. All educators are welcome to attend. However, activities are designed for secondary classrooms.
