Students in the Geospatial Semester class at Washington-Lee High School in Arlington, Va., are putting their skills to the test as they use geographic information systems mapping software to conduct research. One student studied the environmental and demographic impact a new Metro line would have on the Washington, D.C., area. "Students who do real-life problem-solving projects that help real people become very engaged in learning because their learning has a purpose," said Ryan Miller, teacher of the class.
