Welcome to sch.im Isle of Man Department of Education, Sport & Culture



A trackable is an item that can be tracked from geocache to geocache by it's unique code. You locate the code on the trackable and when logging your geocache find on www.geocaching.com you enter the code to tell the owner if you have retrieved or discovered the trackable. You then do the same process when dropping off a trackable in a geocache.

There are different types of trackable items; Geocoins, Travel Bug Dog Tags and different variations of these!

Below are the trackables released by Isle of Man Schools you can see how far they have travelled and countries they have visited so far!
