Director Conservation Education, U.S. Forest Service
"Agents of Discovery connects young people to their public lands. Conservation and stewardship remain as important as they were when the Forest Service was founded 110 years ago. We are helping to translate and deliver these values through games and technology, the language of kids today."
7th & 8th Grade Science Teacher
“It’s been an amazing experience watching my students get excited about the curriculum and become species experts. Game-based learning is incredibly effective, and I’m glad we are using it as another one of our tools to educate kids.”
4th Grade Teacher
"Using the Discovery Agents app and mission builder invited kids to understand a number of different skill sets. Not only did they need the research behind the information they were providing in the missions but they needed to understand how to engage users in different types questioning in their challenges. Creating a healthy competition amongst students to not only play the game but create the challenges and put them into the missions kept students engaged for weeks. Utilizing the game aspects, along with outdoor and active learning was a great way to engage students and others who tried out our missions."

"Today I used the Discovery Agents app. It was really fun and people were learning more than just sitting down and reading science books."
Education Program Manager, Edmonton Valley Zoo
The Edmonton Valley Zoo is so excited to have our Mission up and running! Agents of Discovery is a unique opportunity for visitors to learn more about the zoo in a fun and interactive way. Our hope is that this will encourage more people to get closer to the animals and find out about some of the zoo’s other initiatives.
