About the workshop:

Each teacher may bring up to four students to participate in the Geocaching activity.  (Please list student names in the notes section upon registering).  Students will explore how the GPS system works, compare the differences between using a smartphone and a geocaching unit to find geocaches, and put their knowledge to the test by finding hidden geaocaches in the West Salem area.  The event is funded through the 2016-2017 Gifted and Talented Grant.  Per grant requirements, a minimum of 25% of the student participants on a team must be from an under-represented group.  This challenge is ideal for students in grades 4 through 10.

Free to student/teacher teams from schools within the MVGT Network (includes Cashton, Whitehall, Wonewoc);  $50 per team for non-MVGT Schools.

Snacks and lunch provided.

Four students may attend with every one teacher that registers.  Max of 75 people.
