    June 15 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

    All Virtual Events are Scheduled/Run in Eastern Time. Click Here for a time zone converter.

    Event run by Oak Park Public Library.

    In this workshop, students will learn how satellite images, collected by various agencies around the world, can be used to help global humanity. Platforms like OpenStreetMap and the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team Tasking Manager offer an opportunity for volunteers, (such as the participants at TechGirlz) who are not necessarily experts in coding or interpreting this information, to contribute to critical missions.

    Students will need access to a computer (Chromebooks OK!) Please create a free OpenStreetMap account prior to the event.

    Please send an email to Eileen if you have any questions. Thanks!
