GPS Adventures at the Maryland Science Center
Dan at the Maryland Science Center in Baltimore emailed to let us know that GPS Adventures, a traveling exhibit all about GPS and geocaching, will be opening tomorrow, February 20th and will be running until April 18th.
GPS Adventures gives visitors an introduction to GPS technology and the basics of navigation in general, and offers some cool hands on experience. The exhibit is set up like a small maze, which the idea of simulating a geocaching event by having visitors explore 4 different environments, find a hidden cache and solve a puzzle in each area, and then use the code to enter each of 4 Satellite Rooms.
GPS Adventures is a great way to get kids introduced to GPS and the role it plays in our world, so if you can get to Baltimore, definitely check it out. For those of you on the West Coast, GPS Adventures will be heading to Turtle Bay Exploration Park in Redding, California after it leaves the Maryland Science Center in April.
