Honors Convocation

MACHIAS, Maine – Local youth and community members will have the opportunity to discover the rich natural resources, mountain chains, rivers, and oceans of the European continent when a larger-than-life map of Europe rolls into Machias on May 1.

Part of the National Geographic Giant Traveling Maps Program, the 26-foot by 26-foot map of Europe will be rolled out at the Reynolds Center Gymnasium on the University of Maine at Machias campus from 1 to 5 p.m. on Wednesday, May 1.

National Geographic Giant Traveling Maps tour the nation’s schools to bring hands- and feet-on geography education to youth. The giant map of Europe will teach students the power of maps and the limitless depth of geography through interactive games, incorporating physical movement to teach students place names, physical geography, and cultural geography as well as map reading skills. They will explore the iconic castles, towers, and archaeological sites of Europe, and learn how scientific discoveries, technological breakthroughs, plagues, and wars have shaped European life over centuries.

Susan Lahti from the Maine Geographic Alliance will be on hand to lead activities for youth in grades K-8, with students and staff from UMM’s Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Service Center providing assistance.

The event is free and open to the public. School classes from preschool to eighth grade, clubs, home school groups, and others may arrange a time to visit the map together for a 45-minute activities session by contacting Jenny Robish at jennifer.robish@maine.edu or 255-1214.
