Project GRACE Open House Presentation

Project GRACE (GIS/T Resources and Applications for Career Education) prepares youth in economically disadvantaged communities for the prospect of careers in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics through Geographic Information Systems (GIS). The GRACE program is a broad partnership to provide technical mentoring and workplace opportunities for the students participating in real-world problem solving using GIS applications. Student interns work in cooperation with Michigan Technological University and Keweenaw National Historical Park to create interactive storymaps. At Michigan Technological University, interns developed the Keweenaw Time Traveler project, doing historical mapping of the built environment throughout the Copper Country. At Keweenaw National Historical Park, interns developed interactive web pages called storymaps about park programs and projects. Work completed by the interns exhibits intellectual depth and creativity as they strive to improve the communities in which they call home.
