You'll need a trust licence to take this course.

Lets go find the caches. Hidden around the city are lots of little packages for you to find as part of a world wide game called Geocaching. You find them using a GPS and some mapping tools. Some require some puzzle solving skills too.

Ideally you'll have a phone with GPS function, the Geocaching app, and I like the app GC tools too. However we'll be working in groups of at least three so one device per group should work.

If taking this class it would be great if you could create an account for yourself at: https://www.geocaching.com/play

Then you could check out the geocaching map to understand what we're doing more.

You'll develop an understanding of coordinates, bearings, navigation principles and some problem solving and logical thinking too.
