The University of Wisconsin Water Resources Institute and Minnesota Sea Grant offered this free webinar on January 26 to support those interested in accepting the Visualize Your Water Challenge. The webinar covers ArcGIS tools, interactive story maps, data analysis, water quality and more.

For more information about the Visualize Your Water Challenge or the webinar, email Cindy Hagley, Environmental Quality Extension Educator, Minnesota Sea Grant, chagley@umn.edu.

Recognizing that nutrient pollution is one of the nation's most difficult environmental challenges, this challenge is brought to you by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Geological Survey, the U.S. Department of Education, the Great Lakes Observing System, Esri and others seeking to engage the innovative spirit of high school students to create compelling visualizations about nutrient pollution using geographic information system (GIS) software in conjunction with water quality data collected through federal, state, and local efforts.

Get excited about technology! Get excited about science!
