The 9th grade geography and world civilizations classes had the awesome opportunity to participate in the UVU Geographic Information System—GIS-- day.

While on campus, students were able to get an idea of how GIS is used in everyday life and discover what occupations use GIS routinely. Students were given the opportunity to listen to GIS professionals and ask questions, as well as give the equipment a try themselves.
