The "best event in town" for a GIS-using K12 teacher just got better for those at a school with an ArcGIS School Bundle. K12 teachers attached to the Bundle can attend all four days of the Esri Education Summit for $100.

The Education Summit features two days, Saturday plus Sunday, just with educators, in plenary sessions, user presentations, and hands-on workshops, plus hours of the best networking around, with hundreds of GIS-using educators swapping tips and strategies. Then we join the launch of the main Esri Users Conference, in the vast auditorium with nearly 20,000 GIS users, for the Monday plenaries followed by the afternoon reception up in the Map Gallery in a forest of amazing maps! And finally Tuesday, in the enormous Expo, with Esri staff from technical, training, and industry teams, plus hundreds of companies, agencies, non-profits, and partner organizations. If you can extract yourself from the Expo, you can immerse in any of hundreds of technical sessions and user presentations.
