Agents of Discovery is an augmented reality app that gets you active and engaged in learning about the world around you. With Agents of Discovery, you become a top-secret Agent, dedicated to solving mysteries about science, culture, technology, history, nature and much more... Download the app and the Mission you want to play BEFORE heading out. Once these have been downloaded, the app does not require any data or WiFi to run.

There are Missions to play outside in Canada, the U.S., Australia, and New Zealand. Check out our list of current sites here:

Can’t find one near you? Fear not! Agents of Discovery has partnered with Johnny Morris’ Wonders of Wildlife Foundation to bring you Mission Conservation — a series of play-at-home Missions and livestreams. Head over to the Mission Conservation page for more information:

Let’s get the jargon out of the way:

Missions are games or scavenger hunts, made up of Challenges. Each Mission has a map of its location and a Field Agent to guide you.

Challenges are questions or games. There are a variety of Challenge types: AR Picker, Image 50/50, AR Catch, AR Sorter, and Sound Matcher, to name a few. Once you have completed all the Challenges in your Mission, you’ll unlock a reward!

What is a petroglyph? How much water goes over Niagara Falls? Why does the moon change shape? Who was Martin Luther King Jr.? Why are bees so important? How do you prevent wildfires? How do you change the world? We’ll help you answer all these questions and more!

Trethewey House Heritage Site ,

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!

Developer Response ,

We are so glad to hear about your amazing experiences hosting Agents of Discovery at Trethewey House! Thanks for the review.

Mysterious download

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?

Developer Response ,

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
