During this half-day symposium, scientists and education specialists from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) guided participants through easy-to-understand explanations about the global positioning system (GPS) and the science behind it, known as geodesy. Participants learned about the history of geodesy (Eratosthenes) and how the GPS modern technology is being used today in innumerable applications. All participants received educational materials from NOAA. The program was designed for teachers of grades 5-12.
