Woodstock High School Visits Department

As part of the partnership agreement with Woodstock High School, about 30 students spent most of 27 February 1996 touring the Department's facilities and meeting the faculty and staff. The visit was to further increase the students' awareness of the geomatics profession and to help entice them to remain interested in mathematics and science.

The group received informal presentations from Dave Coleman (on geographic information systems); John Hughes Clarke (on geomatics and oceans); Yola Georgiadou (on department projects taking place in South America); and from Sue Nichols (on department projects in Eastern Europe). The students were then split into groups and visited the four laboratories in the department: Ocean Mapping, GIS and Photogrammetry, GPS, and Engineering Surveys.

The group photograph of students and their teacher, was taken outside the engineering building, Head Hall.
