As a project, I created an activity that focused on global positioning satellites and allowed participants to enjoy beautiful Cooperstown.  I chose to create a mobile app on Appery.io which allowed participants to input GPS coordinates to get out and explored the town. While preparing this activity, I connected my activity to the Next Generation Science Standards.

 

This lesson plan allowed me to think about:

  • How to create an application quickly and cheaply

  • How to link standards (New York State Standards and Next Generation Science Standards) to an activity
