Using Geographic Information Systems (GIS)to Find Future Oyster Restoration Sites – For Educators

Open to: High School Teachers
Opportunity at a Glance: 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. 
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, participants can expect the following during this session:

  • 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; and
  • Learn about their local marine environment – NY Harbor.
