Siri, Take me Home

Phil Mayhoffer, Middle School STEM Teacher
We are working on an exploration of different technologies that enable modern navigation. So far, we have reviewed the fundamentals of mapping techniques and will soon move on to explore both the history and current uses of GPS technology in helping us get from A to B. Through our hands-on practices with mapping, topography, and triangulation, we will gain a greater appreciation of everything that has goes on behind the scenes when we tell Siri, “Take me home.”
