Geocaching and GPS Topics for November Saturday Club

By: Lisa S. Icenogle

Geocaching and GPS usage will be the topics for the Tate Geological Museum’s November Saturday Club on Nov. 7, 2015 from 10:30-11:30 a.m.

“Guest instructor Renee Hardy will lead the 8 and older group through map reading, orienteering and site diagramming exercises,” said Russell Hawley, Tate Education Specialist. According to Hawley, students will incorporate maps and diagrams from sites at which some of the Tate’s main attractions were originally found. Hardy will also show how these skills can be incorporated into engineering, geology, paleontology, and surveying, “as well as show students how they can use these skills in scientific careers and in everyday life,” Hawley added.

The Saturday Club is free and has two age divisions, one for students aged 8 and older, and the other for children aged 5-7.

Saturday Club is held at the Tate Geological Museum located on the Casper College campus. The next Saturday Club will take place on Saturday, December 12, 2015 during the Tate’s annual open house. For more information, call the museum at 307-268-2447.
