The 2014 Greater Kansas City Science & Engineering Fair was held March 12 – 14, 2014. There were some 1,141 students participating in this event, and produced almost 900 projects. These students are 4th through 12th graders from seven counties within the Greater Kansas City area in Missouri and Kansas.
The St. Louis Region and Central Region of American Society of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) setup a special award to honor outstanding projects relating to our professions. We are especially interested in projects using geospatial technologies, such as cartography, photogrammetry, remote sensing, geographic information systems (GIS), global positioning system (GPS), and supporting technologies, on environmental issues. The judging day was March 13, 2014. One project was selected to receive the ASPRS Special Award, for its use of maps as data source in the project. The winner project and the author are summarized below.
The award presentation day was March 15, 2014. The winner received a package of a certificate, a congratulation letter, and cash prize. It overall is a great experience. We are pleased to see that many young scientists are highly interested in environmental studies.
Attached are smaller versions of the winning project. Also attached is an example package of a certificate, a congratulation letter, and cash prize that was given to the winner. For questions, please contact Dr. Ming Hung through e-mail at the address listed below.
