Synopsis: Students from the Marine Academy of Science and Technology in Sandy Hook, NJ develop an interactive wiki of the region's indigenous plant species using GPS and smart phone technology.

Commentary: This segment is from the 2012-2013 season of Classroom Close-up, NJ, a half-hour television program that features projects happening in New Jersey public schools. Two weeks after it was filmed, the region was devastated by Hurricane Sandy and the school had to be relocated, which resulted in two follow-up stories including Lessons of Sandy.
