An exciting collaboration, that benefits ALL K-12 students, teachers and school administrators in the State of Michigan, provides a complete suite of geographic information systems (GIS) FREE to K-12 schools.
This partnership, between Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI) and Eastern Michigan University, changes the way teachers can design learning opportunities and teach their K-12 students.
