STEMLandia in the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University in Boston taps into the power of the Lab Cache Geocaching Adventure experience to reveal a world of nature and education. Thanks to HQ’s partnership with EdGE at TERC, this is the next evolution of Lab Caches. Premium Members around the world tested Lab Caches during I <3 Geocaching in February.

STEMLandia challenges geocachers to find 10 creatively hidden lab caches. It’s not your typical adventure. Geocachers must explore the Arboretum grounds using Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) skills to unlock the finds. Those who participate may be eligible to receive a fancy, limited edition Geocoin. The First to Find geocacher wrote, “Great series! Well thought out with some  tricky hides.”

The STEMLandia adventure runs through the end of May 2014. It is open to all geocachers and is most appropriate for youth ages 12 and up, as well as adults. Other adventures are on the horizon and you can help. Submit ideas for a future Lab Cache series.

    What an awesome series! Highly recommend them if you can make it into the Boston area. One of my best geocaching experiences to date. Btw, it’s bumble! Not brumble! ;-)

    This series was fantastic. We all had a wonderful time and
    would like to thank all of the fine people who put this together. Anyone who
    has not tried the STEMLandia — The Nature’s Apprentice Geocaching
    Adventure is missing a great deal of fun. Thank you very much. MPBamberg
