On a rainy Saturday morning at Discovery Elementary, 10 teachers and educators met up to discuss how mapping neighborhood assets, opportunities, and problems can engage students more deeply in science and engineering. They explored how system models, looking for patterns, and observing change over time can help students investigate and map their community. All left with strategies to use in mapping their community and ideas for how they can use the information gathered.

Braving the elements, the workshop participants practiced hyper-local mapping with an emphasis on stormwater infrastructure around the school.
