Discover how to Get Kids Into Survey

At INTERGEO 2022, I had the pleasure of visiting the Get Kids Into Survey booth and talking with Elaine Ball about how to get kids into surveying. As an ambassador of GKIS in Brazil, I am proud to share her mission to introduce surveying to young children.

The main goal of Get Kids Into Survey is to educate children about topography and its various aspects, such as hydrography and cartography. To do this, they have developed interactive posters and homework projects that children can participate in. Encouraging the children to post their work on social media platforms, further spreading topographical awareness.

What is even more impressive is that the project is entirely funded by the private surveying equipment industry. GKIS has some amazing sponsors behind them, and also characters like Simon, the foreign surveyor. On each poster, children are challenged to find Simon in different places, making it an enjoyable and engaging learning experience.

At the booth, GKIS had over 600 posters to offer to the children. Unfortunately, they ran out due to high demand. But not to worry, Elaine suggested that they could send the posters to interested people in America.

In conclusion, Get Kids Into Survey is doing an excellent job of educating young children about surveying. If you want to learn more about the project, be sure to visit the website. It is vital to get kids interested in surveys and their importance to the future of our world.
