GRACE GIS Internship Presentations


Please join us to support this summer’s GRACE Program interns. 11 students from CLK and Houghton High schools have been working with researchers at Michigan Tech, the National Park Service, and WUPPDR to map children’s health, municipal parks, and more! Students will give short illustrated presentations about their research projects, which use GIS (Geographic Information Science) to investigate the changing relationships between people and the built environment in our communities. Come hear what these smart and dedicated teenagers have to say about how our streets, buildings, parks, and landscape features help shape their experiences of home life, education, heritage, and general well-being. 

A light meal and refreshments will follow.  All are welcome!


The GRACE Program funds teachers and students in Michigan’s underserviced communities to learn GIS (Geographic Information Systems) for career applications. GRACE is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF-ITEST) and is run in partnership with Eastern Michigan University and Michigan Technological University. To learn more about GRACE visit:
