Was browsing one of the magazines my girls bring home from school earlier and came across an orienteering website for Devon which has just started. What a fabulous idea! I am all for kids (and adults) charging around using maps to have fun. And there's hope for me when I retire too, as they do courses for over 75 year olds.
My daughter is off to secondary school soon and I know I'll wade in on the humanities department there and offer to talk about surveying, imagery, maps and all things geospatial. I will make use of geomatics.org too - a great site (although it doesn't seem to be talking to me tonight...)
