Please complete this survey if you are interested in registering your school to rent STEMworks National Geographic s Giant Traveling Map (GTM) of the Pacific Ocean.
MEDB Women in Technology STEMworks has recently added the National Geographic's Pacific Giant Traveling Map to our STEM Library. This geospatial tool is available to all schools, clubs and organizations to rent at a rate of $100/week in addition to any shipping charges for delivery to Hawaii islands.
We will be requesting that all school's interested in hosting this map designate one contact person to handle correspondence, liability, scheduling, and transportation of the map to and from your school. This survey is a preliminary request for information only.
National Geographic's Pacific Ocean Teacher Guide can be downloaded here for information regarding activities with the Pacific GTM. You may also visit our website for more details. Please ensure that your school has sufficient facilities to host the GTM (it measures approximately 26’ x 35’ and will require a large cafeteria or gym to house it). Also, you will need access to a truck to coordinate transportation as the map tube is 9.5 feet long (can easily be carried by two people).
Map dimensions/weights are below: The cylindrical shipping tube is approximately 9.5 ft. long x 12" wide. The Pacific GTM map is estimated to weigh 115 lbs and measures approximately 26’ x 35’.
