GPS Projects for #backtoschool

If you are an educator, or a student who is learning how to use an Arduino or other basic microcontroller, learning how to use a GPS module is a great way to go from blinking LEDs to interacting with the outside world.  GPS modules are remarkably easy to use, and they open the door for many neat projects.  Here are just a few projects to inspire you:
