INTERNATIONAL GIS DAY CELEBRATION - NOVEMBER 2018

We Albedo Foundation were very excited to celebrate GIS DAY 2018 with 8th std school children of tribal school at Waghera Nashik. Total of 55 students were participants in the event. In this event, we took the demonstration on what is GIS, map making and types of maps. Students were happy to participate in the Geotagging maps and geography quiz. Students tried to find out the geography quiz answers on google earth and they were very happy and curious to know more about the geography and the earth systems. Teachers were very supportive in this event and they agreed to use GIS as an interactive learning tool for the geography classes.

At the ending ceremony, we have distributed the sweets and the participation certificates to each student. Students promised us to celebrate this event every year with the same enthusiasm. This was the first ever GIS DAY CELEBRATION in the City
