COURSE DESCRIPTION: Love scavenger hunts? Engage your spatial-thinking and treasure-hunting skills while learning how to collect, analyze, and visualize geospatial data during this fun independent, local holiday-themed scavenger hunt. A mobile device with camera (iphone, Android, iPad, etc.) is all that is needed for students to photograph and document items on the scavenger hunt list. We will introduce participants to the geospatial techonology used, provide a list of items to collect (via camera) and instructions on how they will be uploaded to a scavenger hunt map. Check back at the Holiday 4 Stem page to see the collected data on a heat map!
