 Maryland Outdoors: A Summer Research Experience

The Washington College GIS Lab is currently accepting applications for our summer program, targeted to students in 9th through 12th grades. The week-long program will run from July 6th to July 12th. Participants will explore the Chester River, take water samples, build underwater robots, collect bathymetry data using sophisticated equipment such as side-scan sonar, and more. They will then take their collected data back to our computer lab for analysis using GIS.
