Teaching with Spatial Technology (TwiST), is designed to teach 6-12 educators how to use Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Global Positioning Systems (GPS) in the classroom to create meaningful and challenging lesson plans for your students. Join us for a week in Vancouver, WA so you can become proficient in the many aspects of this exciting and imaginative technology. These two technologies are the backbone tools for capturing and managing spatial data. There are literally thousands of applications that you can accomplish with your students around your school and community. They can range from resource management to environmental assessment to cartography, etc., and be taught at various levels of complexity. The applications are endless.

In most cases, teachers can receive sponsorships for registration and travel costs through LSAW. For more information about teacher sponsorships, please contact LSAW Executive Office.

This program is co-sponosed by Western Federation of Professional Surveyors (WFPS) and National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES).
