ThinkAchieve course offers experiential learning in San Salvador, Bahamas

Leah Keith-Houle’s Red Bank High School students are learning to map with a purpose. Unlike most mappers who are white males between 30-45 years old, Keith-Houle’s students are often young black women and men who are 16 years old. They tested their skills when they formed a Humanitarian Outreach Team (HOT) for OpenStreetMap (OSM). With this open source program, they’ve mapped Padang, Indonesia, for tsunami preparedness and Washington, Illinois, for tornado first responders.
