Technology in Nature

April 10, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm


kids-binoc Thanks to a PA DEP Education Grant for a Technology in Nature Initiative, WPNR has been able to purchase and utilize various technological into our programs. These tools will enhance our existing programs as well as peak the interests of children who may be more technologically interested.

By using technology in nature, children (and adults) are able to use portable devices as a ‘safety net’ of sorts when going outside. From simple apps like Mapquest for directions to digital field guides, geocaching programs, journaling, and more, it’s now easier than ever to fuse technology with nature for those kids who love their screens but need to get outside.

Families are invited to join us to learn how to integrate technology into their outdoor adventures and explorations. All are welcome to bring smart phones and tablets to see how to utilize these tools to enhance your outdoor experiences.

Registration is not required for this free event.
