GIS Enabling Next Generation Science Standards in STEM Education
Track: Teaching and Research
Authors: Allison Hoff, David Anderson, Mary Starr, Yichun Xie
The GIS/T Resources and Applications for Career Education Program, funded by NSF, is developing a set of GIS/T learning activities for middle and high school teachers and students. GRACE is demonstrating GIS/T as a powerful tool that addresses 3D learning as envisioned by the New Generation Science Standards: Science and Engineering Practices, Crosscutting concepts, and disciplinary core ideas. Water quality and impact lesson modules will be presented to illustrate the 3D learning environment.
