On May 22, 2010 we will host our second annual DEN Geocaching Day! Every Discovery Educator is encouraged to venture out with some colleagues on May 22 and have some fun geocaching as you connect with your fellow educators one more time before the summer. Do you want to join us?
For muggles (non-geocachers) and pros alike, STAR Discovery Educators will host a series of webinars in May to get us ready. The webinars will answer the basic questions of “What is gecoaching?” and “How do I get started?” as well as emphasize the curricular connections of geocaching.
This year, we’re offering two different webinars:
Monday, May 3 @ 7pm ET (Presented by STAR Jim Clark.)
Thursday, May 13 @ 7pm ET (Presented by STAR Bridget Belardi.)
Curricular Connections of Geocaching
Thursday, May 6 @ 7pm ET (Presented by STAR Conni Mulligan.)
Monday, May 17 @ 7pm ET (Presented by STAR Tom Turner.)
So now that you have a resource to get you started, what exactly will the day look like? Well, we have a group of DEN Guides (experienced geocachers) who have agreed to host events in their areas.
For groups that register (i.e., those that have a DEN guide to lead them and have filled out the short form), we will help you out with lunch and send a special DEN geocoin your way.
Current sites with DEN Guides are listed on the Geocaching Day 2010 page. If you’d like to attend one of these events, contact the DEN Guide listed.
