On February 2nd, the University of Central Florida debuted the nation's first GeoBus at University Park Elementary. The GeoBus is presented by Citizen Science GIS at UCF.
A total of 18 Title I schools have been scheduled for visits by the GeoBus, where 5th-grade students have the opportunity to have immersive learning experiences with coding, augmented reality, geography, renewable energy, virtual reality, drones, and more. The Title I office has covered the $15 per student cost for all participants.
GeoBus is a mobile geospatial technology learning lab powered by the sun on a 40-foot repurposed city bus that visits Florida K-12 schools. Students participate in team science through interactive, hands-on learning stations inside/outside of GeoBus during a school visit. All activities are connected to Florida Education and National Geographic Content Standards.
