Margarita Gamboa, a local teacher from Bahia Ballena, Costa Rica, will be traveling to the states to attend the T3G Institute, a GIS training event for educators. To help make this possible, several companies have stepped up to help sponsor her trip and training:

  • Esri will cover her lodging during the event
  • A Costa Rican company, Geotecnologias S.A., is covering Margarita’s airfare to L.A.
  • GISetc is covering her meals while in attendance
  • and Escuela Verde is covering the cost of a teacher to fill in for her classroom while she is away
