Geocaching
Susan has made this resource available. Thanks very much, Sue. John

Geocaching came about after the US Military made the accuracy of their satellites available to the public in 2000. There are now 5 million caches hidden all around the world. So what is Geocaching? It's an outdoor treasure hunting game using a GPS enabled device. Players use latitude and longitude co-ordinates to navigate to a specific site in an attempt to find a hidden container at that location. Sounds like fun? It is.
If you like fresh air, exercise, using your brain to solve cryptic clues, enjoy a challenge and are a keen observer of your environment then this is the workshop for you. Come and learn about the art of and how you can implement it in the curriculum.
