A Public Service Program by
Synergy Systems, LLC
In January of 1999, Synergy Systems, LLC kicked off it's GPS for Scholars program with the intention of assisting both teachers and students with their GPS product needs. To date, the GPS for Scholars program has successfully supported many projects ranging from Model Rocketry in a high school physics curriculum to university level hardware/software design classes, including several graduate level research projects. Other projects have included precision timing and many robotic and remote position control applications.
As more of these various projects come to fruition, we hope to expand this page with pictures and short articles by the students, describing their projects: successes, failures (just how fast can you drill a GPS receiver into the ground atop a model rocket?), and project results.
Over the years, most of the GPS receivers, antennas, software programs and other parts were supplied to educational projects from parts that customers traded in for newer products. Now that all of the trade-in parts have been distributed, we're supplying parts for the GPS for Scholars program at a discount from both our main inventory and excess inventory (when available).
We've also learned that most people prefer to use full GPS kits for educational projects, instead of separate parts, since the kits are operational immediately on receipt and don't require extra work. Kits also carry a larger discount than separate parts.
To qualify for the GPS for Scholars program, and the educational discounts, please download the GPS for Scholars qualification form. Email directly from the form or print and fax to +1 858 566 0768.
