Inspiring Inquiring Minds: Using GPS in the Classroom:  Inspiring Inquiring Minds: Using GPS in the Classroom Sheryl Crain, NBCT What is GPS?:  GPS is funded by and controlled by the US Department of Defense (DOD). While there are many thousands of civil users of GPS world-wide, the system was designed for and is operated by the U. S. military. GPS provides specially coded satellite signals that can be processed in a GPS receiver, enabling the receiver to compute position, velocity, and time. Four GPS satellite signals are used to compute positions in three dimensions and the time offset in the receiver clock. What is GPS? How is GPS used?:  How is GPS used? Besides being used by the military, GPS is used in forestry, biology, fishing, hunting, boating, racing, nursing, and many other fields. GPS technology can be effectively used in your classroom as well. How does GPS work?:  A GPS device receives signals from satellites orbiting the earth to triangulate your location, which will be given as a global address. Or, the GPS device can lead you to a previously marked location, much like a compass. How does GPS work? How do I get a GPS receiver?:  How do I get a GPS receiver? They range in price from about $100 to well over $1,000. Consider writing a mini-grant to get 4 or 5 to be used at your school.

Interdisciplinary Cache – each cache has information or an activity from a different subject subject area Holiday Themed Cache – find Easter Eggs or Halloween candy!
