GeoMentor Program Events at the 2017 AAG Annual Meeting in Boston
The GeoMentors program will have a very active presence at the upcoming AAG Annual Meeting in Boston with a variety of ways you can learn more about program efforts, get ideas on how to get involved, meet other GeoMentors, and engage with program staff. Please consider attending or visiting one of the following (program staff would love to meet you!):
- Display Area: Check out the GM display, located on the same floor as registration, for program information and to ask questions to program staff. We’ll give you a ribbon to sport on your name badge for the week! Tell your non-GeoMentor friends to come by too!
- Panel Session: Wednesday, April 5th; 4:40-6:20 pm; Room 201, Hynes, Second Level. “GeoMentors: Assisting in the Advancement of Geographic Education.” Current GeoMentors will speak about their experiences and answer questions from the audience. Come to discuss our mutual interest in finding ways to enhance GIS & geography education outreach to K-12 students.
- Workshop: Thursday, April 6th; 3:20 – 5:00 pm; Room 203, Hynes, Second level. “GeoMentors: A Program Primer and Strategies for Success.” Current and aspiring GeoMentor volunteers are encouraged to attend this workshop led by program staff. It will provide a program overview, covering aspects from the registration process and finding collaborators to available resources and example activities. Participants are encouraged to ask questions, share experiences, and discuss strategies, challenges, and success stories of the GeoMentors program and general K-12 outreach efforts.
