On-a-Roll in Your Schoolyard
Program Outline

This action-packed program ensures that students can confidently pull coordinates from a topographic map in order to find locations in the real world with their GPS unit. After mastering the UTM coordinate system indoors, students will head outside to explore the GPS unit and complete a number of geocache challenge courses. This program emphasizes the value of utilizing multiple navigational tools (map, compass, GPS, natural signs, etc) and the need to consider each tool’s limitations by actively engaging the most important tool: their minds!
