From Inquiry to Insight

A vital aspect of GIS education is the process by which students ask questions, collect and analyze data, and make sense of the results. Esri has supported inquiry-based learning for many years, and as we celebrate the 25th anniversary of Esri’s Education Program, the Education GIS Conference will showcase those engaged in inquiry-based learning.
