Agents of Discovery COVID-19 Update

Dear Fellow Agents,

The Agents of Discovery team extends our best wishes for your wellness in this uncertain and challenging time. The way we interact with each other is changing as we isolate and continue to practice necessary social distancing.

We all need to be taking care of ourselves. Exercise, sunlight, and the outdoors have been shown to help with emotional, mental, and physical well-being. This is why many leaders and top medical professionals are encouraging people to go outside while practicing safe social distancing. Agents of Discovery gets you outside moving, playing and learning. Our platform is designed to be played on your personal device while allowing you and your family to maintain social distancing protocols.

We know that parents and educators are looking for ways to continue engaging their communities in safe and creative ways. In response, here are some timely resources we are providing…

For Educators: Our Challenge Library has thousands of Challenges to help you create your Missions. It includes a new collection dedicated to COVID-19/Viruses that educators are finding particularly helpful – we encourage you to check it out.

To help with the safety of our customers, we have dedicated a special area of our website where you can purchase your own PPE (Personal Protective Equipment).

For Parents: Can’t access a park? Every Monday there is a new Mission for your kids to enjoy in your backyard, in your house, or in an open park.

Free Conservation Education Missions every Monday

In cooperation with Johnny Morris’ Wonders of Wildlife National Museum & Aquarium and the USDA Forest Service, we have launched a campaign called Mission Conservation. Mission Conservation will provide you access to Image Recognition (IR) Missions that you can share with your community. New Missions are launching every Monday (“Mission Monday”). Details can be seen here.

Operation Smokey Bear 75th Birthday

Smokey Bear’s 75th Birthday is this year, and the only gift he wants is for you to help prevent wildfires. Agents of Discovery has teamed up with the U.S. Forest Service to develop IR Triggered Smokey Bear Missions in each state. This will allow players to use Agents of Discovery from any location, with the goal of increasing awareness about the importance of wildfire prevention for protecting our natural areas and where we live, work and play.

“With Agents of Discovery, I’m able to get them motivated to get dressed and out the door to explore local parks to learn about wildlife, nature, and landmarks.”

"This summer families have been on their phones at Victoria Park. It’s not what you think though; visitors aren’t ignoring the park to check their social media feeds, instead they are using an app that gets ‘indoors’ kids outside. Agents of Discovery is a games app that combines smartphone technology with nature. For example families discover native bird calls, volcanic rock formations, identify plants and find out why there is a memorial for a dog. So far it’s proving very popular, we’ve had 1250 users and it’s likely to pick up more momentum as other Christchurch organisations come online."
"Agents of Discovery is a fantastic way to connect with families and students who visit the San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park. At SF Maritime, we are always looking for innovative ways to engage audiences, and Agents of Discovery is a fun and interactive platform that combines education with exploration."

"You make a fantastic product that engages kids in the outdoors. Love to see screens put to a positive and healthy use!"

"As a parent who loves to take her kiddos exploring, I appreciate the Agents of Discovery App so much! It can be a little intimating to explore new parks, but the app has been like a personal guide.  We not only have learned nature facts, but also historical facts for the different parks.  The GPS aspect of the app has kept us from getting lost and introduced us to areas of the park we may have skipped otherwise."

"Today I used the Agents of Discovery app. It was really fun and people were learning more than just sitting down and reading science books."
