Geocache Description:


About GPS Adventures Canada

GPS Adventures Canada, a traveling exhibit created in partnership between Groundspeak and Minotaur Mazes, and is a smaller version of the GPS Adventures Maze Exhibit currently touring North America. The educational exhibit will launch at Dynamic Earth in Sudbury, Ontario on March 3, 2012.


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 the Canadian Badlands - each dedicated to interactive science learning.

After exploring the indoor maze, participants can move to the outdoor course and locate nearby geocaches using GPS units available at the exhibition venue.

Geocachers who log their attendance at the GPS Adventures Canada Maze will earn a unique icon for the GPS Adventures Maze Exhibit Cache type.

Dynamic Earth will host the exhibit from March 3, 2012 through October 14, 2012. Dynamic Earth is an earth sciences center at Science North.
