Here is a link to my Blog documenting our Strolling in Space/Time--Navigating in History and the Environment project which won an $8,000 grant from Toyota.

The center piece of the grant is the purchase of 15 Garmin Gekos, mapping software, laser rangefinder, surveying equipment, etc.

As Tech Coordinator for our school, I will be using Geocaching-type activities to teach the use of the GPSrs to the kids.

I just stumbled across this post - a lot of good information here. Glad something practical is being taught in schools! <Grin>

I don't remember seeing this before - thanks for bringing it back to the surface. Congrats on the funding! Sounds like a great project - hopefully the kids (and you, of course!) will have a great time with it. Enjoy :)
