STEAM Kids map the earth
Teach how to protect the planet using GIS
We are hiring part time instructors to teach elementary school students how to create basic maps. This will cover the 2023-24 academic year (Aug-May). Instructor will teach 1 hour mapping technology lessons using a prepared curriculum. Travel is necessary to different school sites. Having GIS skills is a plus but being comfortable with technology with the ability to learn an application is fine. This is a good part time job for a student, youth educator, or tech enthusiast that wants to be in the classroom with kids.
10 hours/week/$40/hr. Need to be available 4-5 days per week 2:00-4:00pm. We have a friendly group that believes in developing student experiences and improving your career marketability.

A little about our program
This mini-tech bootcamp is designed for 1st – 8th graders who know how to handle a mouse on a chromebook. Teach kids how to see the world through digital maps, and demonstrate how we use data and maps to make better decisions. We introduce kids to the amazing science of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) that is used for Google Maps, Zillow, and 3D Modeling. You will guide kids to perform GIS mapping online and give them a sense of what a career in GIS looks like.
Our Classroom Experience
Project skills in:
environmental, mapping, and technology
People that care about protecting the landscape often pursue a degree in environmental science. Data about water, vegetation, and animals is now important for decision management.
Most organizations use a Geographic Information System (GIS) as the central resting place for their data. You can use geographic visualizations to easily show WHAT is happening WHERE. In this map camp you will learn how to make a digital map and learn what does a GIS analyst do.
We have the benefit of using new forms of technology to monitor and protect the planet like satellites, UAVs, and mapping software. You can learn how technology supports any planning process or study larger issues such as mapping climate change.
Our program will teach mapping projects in 8-12 week course offerings where you will learn to:
- Map your neighborhood
- Create a Google photo map
- Utilize high tech mapping
- Discover your water source
- Map the Ring of Fire
- Track animal behaviors
- Navigate through a wildlife safari
- Explore the Digital Atlas of population
- Create a 3D flythrough map
- Find the world’s fastest roller coasters
- Turn your map into a story
- Polish your storymap portfolio
