Agents of Discovery is an augmented reality, geo-triggered app that gets you outside, active, and engaged in the world around you. With Agents of Discovery, you become a top-secret Agent, dedicated to solving the greatest mysteries of science, culture, technology, and nature. Download the app and the Mission you want to play BEFORE heading out. The app does not require any data or WiFi to run, once it’s been downloaded.
There are Missions all over North America. Can’t find one near you? Fear not! More Missions are on the way. Check out our list of current sites here - https://agentsofdiscovery.com/upcoming-events/missions/.
Why are bumblebees fuzzy? Why do beavers build dams? What’s the deal with metamorphosis? And how do you even pronounce metamorphosis? How do you change the world? We’ll help you answer these questions and more!
Here’s how it works:
1) Download the app and create an Agent profile.
2) Pick a Mission in your area. Download the Mission BEFORE heading to it, so you can play the game without WiFi or a data connection.
3) Use your secret agent tools to find and unlock Challenges.
4) Solve these Challenges to learn cool facts and collect USBees (points)!
- Improved animations
- Improvements to AR Sorter challenge type
- Better guidance while playing AR Sorter challenges
- General performance improvements and bug fixes

Needs closer locations
1- there’s nothing wrong with the app, my daughters love it, but the closest location is nearly three hours away. There’s two state forests a National Forest and too many large state parks just minutes from my back door that have nothing for the app
2- there should be a map feature to choose from as well as the scroll down list that the app presently uses.
3- a location, even a general one, would be nice. About 90 percent of these places I’ve never heard of- who knew there was a nature center outside of Pittsburgh? Not this one and I’m an outdoor writer!

Agents on Hiawatha National Forest
This educational, place-based app is brand new to Hiawatha National Forest but has thus far been an amazing tool to bring students and families out to connect with the many faces of the Forest. The only reason I did not give 5 stars is to bring attention to the fact that these “Missions” are not set-it and forget-it; we have seen far more success with having staff on site to help guide and expand upon lessons.
Overall a fantastic teaching tool, great work Agents of Discovery!

Agents in Tucson, AZ
I played this game with my daughter and her friends at Mission Garden in Tucson, AZ and they loved it! They are in 5th grade and found the game easy to understand and the challenge questions fun to find and answer. My daughter literally exclaimed, “This is so fun, I love this!”
I even saw a high school student playing while we were there and loving the “scavenger hunt” nature of the game. It’s clearly fun for all ages! It is extremely satisfying to see kids get excited about being outside and learning about nature.

That’s great to hear, Cori! We’ll be sure to let our friends at Mission Garden know about the fun your daughter and her friends had completing that Mission.
You can see all the nearby Missions we offer and look for new ones to try at our Missions page (www.agentsofdiscovery.com/play/missions/). Thank you for your review!
