Metal Detectors for Fourth Graders

When Josh Wagner, a fourth grade teacher in Pennsylvania, first introduced his students to metal detectors during a lesson on circuits, he never expected them to show such enthusiasm for the hobby. 

About a month ago, while attending a basketball practice, he spotted a woman with purple hair and a shirt that read "Garrett Girl." She bore a striking resemblance to Relic Recoverist on YouTube. A few days later, Josh reached out to Relic Recoverist and discovered that she was at the basketball practice that night with her son. 

Josh asked to deliver some fan mail from his students and after receiving the fan mail, Relic Recoverist decided to thank the kids in person. She decided to make a surprise visit to the school with Quarter Hoarder--another of the student's favorite youtubers.

The pair surprised the studets on March 13th, 2018 a Thompsontown Delaware Elementary School in Juniata County, PA. The students enjoyed asking questions and showing off their finds.

They showed such fantastic enthusiasm for the hobby and represent the next generation of metal detecting hobbyists. The purpose of this fundraiser is to raise funds for their club to provide for proper supplies and equipment.
