It's Geography Awareness Week!

Celebrate Geography and The New Age of Exploration this year from November 17th through the 23rd in 2013. Celebrated in conjunction with the National Geographic Society’s 125th Birthday the week's theme focuses on how geography enables us all to be intrepid explorers in our own way. Check out the newly created archive of past Geography Awareness Week materials, a new suite of resources all about Geography as a field and discipline, and even more tips and tools to plan your own GeoWeek celebrations!

Maui Economic Development Board's Women in Technology Project kicked off Geography Awareness Week a little early. They hosted a GIS and Geography celebration event at Queen Kaahumanu Center in Kahului, Hawaii this past Saturday, November 16. Both children and adults had a wonderful time checking out National Geographic's Giant Traveling Map of the Pacific Ocean, doing fun GIS activities, and meeting local geotech professionals.
