Grant helps students learn about map technology

Florida, US: Students at the Cocoa Beach Jr./Sr. High school are being taught about the nuances behind mapping and GPS (Global Positioning Systems) technology.
The new Geographic Information System (GIS) programme at the school teaches students about mapping techniques used by GPS.
Students who complete three years of study are eligible for industry certification if they pass a project-based exit exam.
Cocoa Beach Jr./Sr. High is the first school in the county to offer the GIS program. The school recently received a USD 10,000 donation from The Grainger Foundation to support the effort.
