Join a high-tech scavenger hunt at Penn State Abington

Ladies, gentlemen and children of all ages, start your... GPS units.

“The Amazing Geocaching Race -- A Family Event” comes to Penn State Abington on Sunday, April 10. Geocaching is a fast-growing outdoor activity that’s part sport, part technology. Each team, with a handheld GPS unit that we provide and guidance from experienced geocachers, will race other teams as they search for hidden containers, or caches, on the beautiful Penn State Abington campus.

Aspiring geocachers should gather at the Athletic Building promptly at 1 p.m. Admission is $10 per family/group of six, payable in advance. Space is limited; preregistration is required at

In addition to the race, Penn State Abington is offering other cultural events both on and off-campus this month. Visitors can experience the talent and artistic breadth of Penn State Abington's students at the fifth annual Bertha Lear Student Art Exhibition, which opens Monday, April 4, in the Woodland Library. The exhibit features sculptures, paintings, drawings, ceramics, photography, printmaking and new media work, and will be open through April 27. Call 215-881-7424 for library hours.
