The Boiler Mazer was used as the setting for two GPS field exercises by students of Wea Ridge Elementary School in Tippecanoe County. Purdue staff and students collaborated with Ms. Jackie Wilson, Wea Ridge teacher, in preparing and conducting the GPS educational program. A 'dress rehearsal' was conducted on 30 July with a group of twelve fifth and sixth graders with prior classroom experience with GPS technologies and thirteen parents. On 5 September, approximately 100 fourth grade students participated in the same activities.
