Science Saturday - Get into Geocaching!
June 14, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Visitors of all ages can participate in this real-world treasure hunt, using GPS units to track caches (which are hidden all around us) and become part of the culture of 6 million geocachers worldwide. The museum's mineral collection and Earth science displays will be open for browsing throughout the morning; workshops begin next door at the Rinker Environmental Learning Center at 10:30 and 11:30. (Participants are encouraged to bring personal GPS units, but there will be some to share. There are also free GPS apps available online.)
