The Future of GAPS

GAPS has been an extremely successful program over the last 3 years. Starting in 2017, we were able to reach more than 100 students across North Carolina to teach about GIS. In Spring 2020, we began our final scheduled cohort, and of course Covid-19 hit just as we were starting the program. We were able to run 2 meetings before having to shut down the program for the rest of the semester.

Unfortunately, the funding that supported GAPS ended in August of 2020. The GAPS team is continuing to search for additional funding sources to one day bring back the GAPS program even bigger and better. In the meantime, I hope you’ll continue to explore all that GIS has to offer!

Many thanks to our funders, the Burroughs Wellcome Foundation and to all of the parents and students that worked with us over the last 3 years.
