Interns with the GRACE Project showcased their great accomplishments and enthusiasm on Thursday evening in front of more than 60 friends and family members. Using ESRI’s StoryMap app, they all produced map-based websites that share aspects of the work they did this summer with the Keweenaw National Historical Park/National Park Service and the Keweenaw Time Traveler. Colleagues Randall Raymond (GRACE Project) and David Anderson (Eastern Michigan Univ) joined us from downstate and marveled not only at the GIS skills the students gained but also the creativity and confidence they exhibited. Through the partnership between Michigan Tech, the National Park Service, and Eastern Michigan, we all look forward to expanding the NSF-funded GRACE Program, which joins schools and community organizations to put STEM learning and career skills to work in the real world. Congratulations to everyone and look out for future GRACE Intern projects!
