#SpreadMathLove with exclusive trackables from Texas Instruments

It’s time to discover your math love. Whether you already have affection for arithmetic, or you’re a numerical novice, this geocaching experience has something you’ll love.

That’s why Texas Instruments (TI) joined forces with the great folks at Geocaching to release 3,000 trackables and help spread the love of math all around the world. There are five different types of “math buddies” to discover, and there just might be a special math bonus if you find all five. For the first time, you can earn a special Spread Math Love digital souvenir, when you log any of the five math buddy trackables from June 1 to December 31, 2021!

It’s your chance to enjoy the great outdoors and witness firsthand the mathematics of nature, from the spirals in seashells to the symmetry of spider webs. Truly, to fall in love with nature is to fall in love with math. And the best adventures are always better when shared, so bring a friend or three and deepen your love of math together.

Did we mention you can also win cool stuff along the way? Just snap a selfie with a “math buddy ” trackable, and share your photos on social media with #SpreadMathLove and #TICacheContest. It’s your chance to win T-shirts, calculators and all sorts of great TI swag. This contest will run through the rest of 2021, so be sure you don’t miss out. Start your own math adventure today. There’s a whole world of math love out there just waiting for you! Request a trackable, and learn more about this at geocaching.com/TIMathLove.

Author, dreamer, geocacher — Interview with Kat Kronenberg

Trackable fans know of her, children love her books, and dreamers dream bigger because of her. Kat Kronenberg is at the center of everything wholesome in our world. If you are not familiar with her, she is a best-selling and award-winning author who lives in Austin, Texas. Her two popular children’s books “Dream Big” and “Love Big” carry positive messages to children and adults alike. If this sounds familiar to you as a geocacher, it’s likely because of the two trackable promotions in recent years. Between her two campaigns, 2,600 trackables have been released and have travelled a cumulative 7 million miles  (11 million km) to 114 countries.

Kat chose to work with Geocaching HQ because she herself is a geocacher and has a connection to the community:

“The treasure hunt theme and community are why I decided to partner with Geocaching. I have to be true to my vision and if I am going to put any time and resources to building the vision of what my books are intended to be this was the place to do it. Mine started in Austin, Texas with the hope to make it to Africa. So far it has been to Hawaii and is in Canada now. AMAZING!”

The ups and downs of life are something Kat is intimately familiar with. Her story is inspirational, intriguing, and full of love. We interviewed Kat Kronenberg to share her amazing journey.
