Foothill instructor wins Science Foundation grant

The National Science Foundation awarded Foothill College instructor K. Allison Lenkeit Meezan a $450,000 grant for a project that brings leading-edge Web-mapping technology to high school and college classrooms.

Meezan leads the project "Using a Web-Based GIS to Teach Problem-Based Science in High School & College" in partnership with San Jose State University professors Richard Taketa, Kate Davis and Cindy Schmidt.

Meezan is the leader in developing the innovative Geographic Information Systems (GIS) program at Foothill. He said the grant will allow Foothill and San Jose State to better prepare students to enter the work force using GIS skills and improve training in GIS technologies among high school and university instructors.
