It’s time for your school to go geospatial
Presented by the Surveying & Spatial Science Institute and Destination Spatial Queensland, this competition emphasises the importance of geospatial science in an increasingly complex and exciting world. Teachers and students will be supplied with supporting materials to ensure effective engagement with their classroom subjects.
The Geospatial Information Competition is a chance for students from grade 7 through 10 to get to grips with how geospatial science works, what it can tell us about our communities, and ways that it can help us solve real world problems.
It’s also a chance to have a lot of fun playing with cool technology – and to win an impressive prize…
First prize: $1000 cash, plus airfares and accommodation for each entrant and the group’s supervising teacher at the Locate 2019 Conference in Melbourne
Second prize: $500 cash
Merit prizes may also be awarded for attributes such as creativity, innovation, communication and effort
In completing their project, students can align their entry with the geography, science, mathematics and technology curricula.
To receive an initial information pack with everything you need to present this creative and engaging project to your students, email email@example.com.
