WHAT: Several 4-H clubs around the state are already preparing for 4-H National Youth Science Day and getting 4-H families excited about the world of Geospatial technology.
HOW: Clubs in Washington and Penboscot counties have launched geocaches at the club and/or county level. They have already hidden more than 10 geocaches! There is even a 4-H geocache hidden at the University of Maine. This is a fun way for our youth to explore Geospatial science and technology, as well as experience being part of a statewide collaborative! We do have resources available to help in our 4-H Science Geospatial Toolkits.
WHY: It would be great for Maine 4-H to create 100 geocaches to celebrate 100 years of 4-H in Maine! These could be for one time use with a club or designed for more frequent use. Would you like your family or 4-H club to be involved?
