GeoMentor Sam & his co-workers Stacie & Tyler ran the Road Scholar (map reading) event at the Utah Science Olympiad in Salt Lake City!  The event tested the ability of middle school and high school students to navigate both a AAA map and a USGS quad map. Students answered 45 questions without cell phones, using only rulers, protractors, and their visual acuity to determine their answers. There were 22 teams that participated with nearly 40 students involved.  Congrats to Sam & his co-workers for facilitating such a fun event!
