George Street Middle School (GSMS) will be hosting a SPARK Day for those students who want to learn about Geocaching. Friendly Forager and I have been tasked to organise an Introduction to Geocaching for 20-25 Grade 8 students. We will break these lucky muggles into four or five groups and each will require an experienced cacher to assist and advise each team. It is expected that a lot of these students will have their own mobile device.
The session will include a short group presentation indoors and then live field work in smaller groups. The session is broken down into two parts on two separate days. The schedule is thus:
FIRST SESSION: Friday 28 May 2021 0915 – 1115
Location; GSMS Classroom TBA meet me in school lobby @ 0900 hrs
0915- 0945 Introduction to geocaching by ranger170 PPT & handheld geo thingys
0945 -1000 hrs break into groups of 4-5 w/an experienced cacher. Do Live caching in downtown core. List of caches will be provided so you can have them loaded onto your GPS.
