Learning & Teaching | A geocaching treasure hunt

“Geocaching can rightfully claim to be one of the fastest growing outdoor activities. Started in 2001, it has become more and more popular, catching the eye of teachers and schoolchildren the world over. Put simply, geocaching is a real world treasure hunt with a technological twist. Geocachers hide containers filled with small gifts in all manner of places, upload the co-ordinates to the official website and then leave them for others to find. To find a geocache, you simply put the coordinates in your GPS-enabled phone. Once found, you sign a tiny notebook and swap a treasure – in reality this is a cracker-type toy; pleasing but with little monetary value.”
