Children from all ages started showing up at the Morrison’s Cove Memorial Park at 9am Saturday morning. There were 10 treasures to be found around the park. Each treasure (called a geocache) had to be found by using hints, clues, and GPS coordinates. Local children as well as two Boy Scout groups showed up to join the adventure. Children learned the basics on satellite functionality and geocaching.
The next project The Mini Makers will be doing is an Arduino Inventor Kit. This kit lets kids dive into the world of hardware interaction with the Arduino programming language. The Mini Makers are planning a multi-session project where they will build, hack and program the Arduinos. For more information on how to get involved be sure to go to www.theminimakers.com
