Eyes in the Sky Participants

From 2004 to 2007, the Eyes in the Sky project offered an eighteen-month program of professional development to forty-nine STEM teachers in three cohorts. Teachers used geospatial technologies (e.g. geographic information systems, image analysis, global positioning systems) to carry out community-based research projects with their students. Eyes in the Sky was a regional program, reaching forty-eight teachers from rural and urban underserved populations in Arizona plus one teacher from New Mexico.
