Schoolyard Scavengers
School yards are great places to explore with a GPS unit! Nature-related caches will challenge the students to connect the outdoors to their classroom life science lessons. Google™ Earth will bring it home! For grades 3–6.

"Cache" Collectors
Students will experience geocaching as the means of investigating water quality issues that affect streams and rivers. Students will use Google™ Earth to locate waterways and plot information. For grades 6–8.

Note: The GPS portion of the workshop will be held outdoors, so students should dress accordingly. Programs are not available December–February. GIS/GPS Labs have a two workshop/day minimum.

Grants are available to qualifying Title 1 schools, generously provided by the DSF Charitable Foundation. Call Science on the Road for more information at the number listed below.
