Penn State is offering a summer camp for 12-18 year-olds to give kids hands-on experience with GIS, GPS, and other geospatial technologies. The camp will be held from July 31st-August 4th at Penn State’s University Park campus. I think this is a great idea, and I wish we could get something like that started here. When we have hosted high school and middel school students in the past, they have really been excited when they can actually use GIS, even if it’s just panning and zooming around to find features or making simple maps.
