Vertices and IMSOCIO held a Geocaching event where SOCIO students were asked to locate 20 markers placed across the College Avenue campus of Rutgers University. Each group was given latitude and longitude coordinates and hints to locate each point. Using a GPS application on their smart phones, the students were able to search for the points and plot them on an interactive map using the Mappler Mobile application.
Vertices hosted a Walkability assessment in conjunction with Woodbridge Township, NJ. Students and parents partnered with volunteers to complete an assessment of the safety and overall walkability on routes to schools around Woodbridge on Saturday, May 30th.
