Come and join us at CESA 4 for our Geocaching event! Students will use technology, engineering, and coding to investigate how GPS systems work, learn how to program and plot their own geocache, and spend time outside searching for area caches. Students will also design their own cache and a series of clues in order to apply and share their new skills in a creative way with their classmates back at their school. This Community-Based Learning opportunity aligns to Wisconsin Science and Social Studies Academic Standards as well as ISTE Standards for Students. Participants are encouraged to dress according to the weather as there will be exploration outdoors and bring cell phones, if available. Advisors are invited to learn alongside their students for this engaging and active learning opportunity.

Cost for the event is $100.00 for teams of up to 4 students and 1 adult advisor or $50.00 for #310 and #320 member schools: Arcadia, Blair-Taylor, Cashton, Gale-Ettrick-Trempealeau, Independence, La Crosse, Sparta, Tomah, Viroqua, and West Salem.
