GEOINT 2015 Family Day

Families welcomed at the GEOINT Symposium


Attendees at the June GEOINT 2015 Symposium in Washington, D.C., had the opportunity to participate in Family Day during the final afternoon of the event. Families learned about the world of GEOINT by exploring the technologies in the exhibit hall offered by 294 exhibitors. About 60 eighth through 12th graders from Anne Arundel County Public Schools’ summer STEM program also toured the exhibit hall. USGIF’s Young Professionals Group hosted a ScavenGeo Dash, an educational scavenger hunt with challenges designed for all ages. From simple imagery analysis to identifying satellite components using Lego models, the challenges helped participants learn basic GEOINT knowledge. Prizes were awarded to teams that completed the dash in the shortest amount of time. Pictured is the Wenks family, whose team IntelliGEOINTsia won the ScavenGeo Dash. From left to right: Tyler, age 9; dad Lt. Col. Kevin Wenks, Joint Staff Directorate of Intelligence; Caroline, age 11; and mom Christina.
