"This is where we are asking for help. One of the activities for grades 9-12 is a small surveying demonstration. We have several total stations at SJDC that we can use, but we are looking for additional equipment and people to help with the project. If anyone is interested in helping on October 2, please let me know. If you are interested in helping develop the project for the students, please let me know that as well."
