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)!

AoD at Trethewey House
We use this App to promote heritage education outside of the regular classroom. Through the app, visitors of all ages are now able to enjoy our heritage site whenever they want, however often they want, and for free! We have two missions, one for kids, and one for adults, but both can actually be used by either group - perfect for an inter generational family outing! It’s a bit like mixing geocaching with Pokémon Go, but with an additional heritage/history twist...and so much fun!

So Much Fun
What a fun app! This is a great way to get kids engaged learning and outside. Highly recommend!
I just found the app on my phone! I’m not a game person and have no games on my phone. I Don’t remember downloading it at all. Nobody else has access to my phone either! How is this possible? I was worried maybe it is a kinda hacking app which steals my information.
Has it occurred to anyone?

Thanks for the review, Houman! That definitely sounds strange, but please note that the only way to download our app on iOS devices would be through a deliberate download from the App Store with a logged in Apple ID.
I’ve provided a help article below which will show you how to restrict downloads on your iPhone to prevent this from happening again:
Hope that helps! If you have any other questions or concerns, please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org.
