I am giving an overview of our Esri education site license to the humanities department at a STEM university. Most have not used ArcGIS at all but I want to show them an idea of things they can do. I was thinking of showing them a demo of creation of a story map of local relevance. Any other ideas?

Insights for ArcGIS might be a good thing to show.

I would suggest trying to find some data that is relevant to that particular STEM university and making a story map based on analysis that you create using that data.

Say for example you are presenting at South Dakota School of Mines and Technology.  
Do a story map of the different areas where some of their students/staff have received research grants and showing the parts of the county or world involved.  

Make it personal to the university.

Hey Curtis! I have found #collector from arcgis to be a big hit, especially among the STEM faculty as well as some of the Humanities folks. Students really enjoy creating data from their phones and seeing them on a map. Of course, #arcgis storymaps are always exciting. Best of luck!

Hi Curtis:
Here is a recent professional development activity I conducted, syllabus, with links throughout; you could choose from some of these maps and apps.  They are designed to help faculty realize that these tools are engaging, relevant, and cool!   https://community.esri.com/community/education/blog/2020/02/19/a-model-professional-development-work...
