Hood and Pyare bring GeoFest to the Glacier
GeoFest was part of Geography Awareness Week.
Environmental Science faculty Eran Hood and Sanjay Pyare helped bring GeoFest to the Glacier Visitor Center on Sat. Nov. 12 as part of Geography Awareness Week. Aerial photographs and satellite images engaged middle school youth in a "Do you know Juneau?" quiz. Other experiential geography activities included glacial retreat comparisons using historic photos and a nametag activity that helped participants identify and learn the Tlingit place names of their home areas.
