How Geocaching Works
The coordinates above are for parking. The cache coordinates are found by answering simple science questions. Hopefully, this will serve as a fun learning experience with your children, or for anyone. Many of the original items in the cache are science-oriented (e.g. toy microscope, animal stickers, magnifying lens, compass, protractor, etc.). You are encouraged to continue the science theme for future exchanges, but of course anything would be appreciated.
