About GPS Adventures Arkansas
The GPS Adventures Arkansas Maze Exhibit is a smaller, regional version of the nationally touring GPS Adventures Maze Exhibit and prominently features Arkansas State Parks. The educational exhibit will travel to 7 Arkansas museums over the next three-and-a-half years.
Attendees will learn about GPS through interactive science experiences in a 1,500 square foot indoor maze and an outdoor GPS training course. The maze will take visitors through three main rooms - Tools of Discovery, Modern Explorer, and Discovering Arkansas - each dedicated to interactive science learning.
An additional geocaching program spanning all 52 Arkansas State Parks will complement the traveling exhibit. Learn more about the Arkansas ParkCache Program.
