Welcome back students and teachers for an exciting new school year! Fall is in full swing, and we've got lots of new projects and opportunities on the way. Over the summer the Alliance worked together with teachers and organizations all across Florida to bring you a full calendar of activities, resources and events.
Our latest and most exciting announcement is the launch of Florida Goes Global, a special news-based activity platform for students and teachers alike. Weekly updates will include lessons, activities and games responding to current events. Designed to engage students with their environmental, cultural, and political surroundings, this project aims to inform and provide resources in an fun, easy way for students of all ages. Stay tuned for announcements on the official release of the website!
In other news, Florida's Giant Travelling Map is celebrating it's second year of circulation. We are thrilled to be sending the famous Orange Crate out on it's next round of school visits. Reserve the map for your class here, or contact us for more information on this free program and it's features!
The Florida Geography Bee has also begun early registration. Visit the site and register now to be eligible for a cash prize rewarded to certain participating schools.
And as you may have heard, the national ArcGIS Online Story Maps competition wrapped up in early July. Florida students performed above and beyond! Check our their award-winning projects here.
With so much going on, there are always additional activities and opportunities to take part of! You can find the most recent availabilities in the Opportunities section of our newsletter website.
