The 2012 GPS+Camera Pilot Project examined the question “How has Codrington Village changed over time?” in Biology, Social Studies and Geography. Students conducted original research including site visits, water testing, ethnographic interviewing, and interpreting artifacts and recorded both how they conducted their research and their conclusions. Each subject area produced a 10-15 minute video. This video is a combination of the three videos and gives you an introduction to the 2012 GPS+Camera Pilot Project.
