You will have opportunity to ask questions, and talk with potential employers. Light lunch will be provided (registration is required using above link).
Call for Volunteers
On Thursday, November 6th, we will be hosting a high school event for GIS day. We will be in need of Purdue student volunteers to help with some of the rotations. We will have 70 high school students coming to campus to work in teams of 4 or 5. The agenda will include a GIS/GPS data gathering activity where groups of students go out and collect data points on campus from several categories. They will use IPADs from EAPS or Android Tablets from ABE. We will also have a Zombie Apocalypse planning event where student groups will use Indiana Map to plan for the potential event. We would love to have any students who know a little GIS help with that.
Please sign up to help out with one of these events for an hour or two on Thursday November 6: https://purdue.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_55Rv6LqFepKWjJz
