MaxiMap donated to INTECH Science Museum

admin

On Monday, a team from GeoVation visited INTECH Science Centre and Planetarium to donate a giant floor map from MaxiMap, last year’s GeoVation Challenge winners.

The huge 20 square metre map of Britain is designed as a teaching resource that can be walked and played on with the aim of getting kids excited about geography whilst teaching concepts like scale and distance and the impacts of climate change. Pupils from St Patrick’s School, Southampton tried out map, which will be used by thousands of schoolchildren who visit the centre every year.
