i.am.angel Scholars from Roosevelt High School in Boyle Heights were part of the lineup at the 2013 Esri User Conference, held this week in San Diego!

Using Esri technology in their classrooms, the students worked on GIS mapping projects throughout the school year and presented their findings in front of hundreds of industry professionals and STEM advocates. Their projects focused on ways to TRANS4M their neighborhood of Boyle Heights in East L.A., by using data to educate and empower.

Along the way, the students received valuable mentorship from Esri staff members, especially Charlie Fitzpatrick, Manager of K-12 Education, as well as Jack Dangermond himself, the Founder and President of Esri!
