Maps and Apps Workshop - Wednesday, October 9th

Youth in grades 4th-8th are invited to participate in the 4-H Maps & Apps Workshop on Wednesday, October 9, 5:00-7:00 pm, at Philips in San Marcos. This workshop is being conducted on 4-H National Youth Science Day, a national event designed to engage hundreds of thousands of American youth in a single science project focusing on important issues. This is an exciting national rallying event to celebrate 4-H Science programming.

This workshop, sponsored by Philips, will turn young people into geospatial thinkers as they design and map their ideal park, use GIS mapping to solve community problems and contribute data about their community to the United States Geological Survey.

This is a free workshop, but participants must pre-register by Monday, October 7. More details and a link to the online registration can be found on the Hays County 4-H blog at All supplies are provided.
