Students conduct Global Positioning Systems (GPS) workshop at Hobbs State Park-Conservation Area.

Eureka Springs High School EAST students conducted a Global Positioning Systems (GPS) workshop at the Hobbs State Park-Conservation Area where attendees learned how to use their personal GPS rovers. The EAST students also presented the Pigeon Roost Trail Maps that they created for Hobbs State Park the previous year.

EAST students James, Cassady and Joey braved the cold and wet weather to explain how GPS rovers work.

In 2009, students from the EAST Programs of Alpena High School, Eureka Springs High School and Springdale Har-Ber High School spent part of their summer creating information and marketing materials for Hobbs Park. EAST students and facilitators conducted the EAST Integration and Community Enhancement (EICP) Project, with funding from the Arkansas Department of Education. Project’s technical advisors included Audubon Arkansas, Friends of Hobbs, and the University of Arkansas’ Center of Advanced Spatial Technologies (CAST).

The Eureka Springs High School EAST Program is an elective high school class that encourages students to use high-end technologies to solve community problems. To learn more about the EAST Program and how you can support it and its students, please email EAST Program Facilitator
