GTEST – Teaching Resources


2018 Guest Speaker Presentations

One of the many great aspects of the GTEST (Geo-Technological Experiences for Students and Teachers) camp is the opportunity for the students to learn about the different types of GIS careers available to them. We were lucky enough to receive visits from three GIS professionals: Jefferson West, Associate IT Director, Cheick Diarra, Application Developer, from Praxair and Lisa Matthies-Wiza, Erie County Director of Geographic Information Services.
