Celebrating GIS Day and Geography Awareness Week

At West Florence and South Florence High School

We are excited to announce that the 2015 GIS Day and Geography Awareness Week celebration will take place at West Florence High School and South Florence High School this year. GISDayCartoon2015

The Florence County GIS department is in its 8th year of supporting GIS in Education by introducing GIS concepts to students from the fifth grade on up, as well as becoming involved in school events which allow opportunities for outreach in the community. This year we will focus on questions such as, “What does GIS mean to me?” and “Why is this important to know?” and will be using an interactive presentation designed with activities to engage students in thinking spatially.

On November 19th Lorelei Kelly-Guiles, and Reginald O. Sanders II from the Florence County GIS Department will visit West Florence High School located at 221 N Beltline Dr.  Florence SC 29501.  Mr. Sellers invited them to talk to his three human geography classes which include 80 students. Following that on November 20th, 23rd, and 24th, Principal Carol Hill requested a presentation for the ninth and tenth graders at South Florence High School, located at 3200 S. Irby St. Florence, SC. Over 700 students plan to be in attendance
