Element14 initiates global geocaching treasure hunt
Participants are encouraged to identify caches near locations of scientific significance, which are being recorded on element14’s Atlas of Scientific Achievement.
element14 is also offering 10 Raspberry Pi 2 GPS project kits to select individuals who will use the kit to build a geo-location solution and share their project on the Community. Those interested in winning a kit and building their own GPS solution can apply here.
Anyone interested in participating can visit the element14 Community to request a free Trackable while supplies last. Upon receiving it, members will register their Trackable on Geocaching.com and indicate the Geocache where they have hidden it.
As other geocachers find and move the Trackable, a dynamic map of its travels will be displayed. Participants will be encouraged to find geocaches near locations of scientific significance including but not limited to:
- Government research centers;
- Historical sites;
- Notable museums;
- Natural parks
- Locations of personal significance to the participant: classrooms, maker labs, etc.
Anyone finding an element14 Trackable is encouraged to take a selfie with it to share on the Community and social media using #ConnectedWorld. The Atlas of Scientific Achievement is open to everyone to explore and to add more places of scientific significance.
