Perfect for thought provoking homework and school clubs, Mission:Explore have just released a new BETA version of their award winning website. The new Mission:Explore is a game, but not as you know it. There are two aims to the game. One is to collect points and unlock rewards. The other is to experience the world in new ways by doing vitally important (random and warped) challenges. The more missions your students do the more rewards they’ll unlock and the more fun you’ll have during their stay on planet Earth.
Created by a geography educators and supported by Ordnance Survey, Mission:Explore is a radically creative contribution to geography in schools. You will find missions on the site which have been created not only by Mission:Explore, but also National Geographic Education who are using challenges on the site to promote Geography Awareness Week this November.
Mission:Explore can be used to help us all learn about the world in which we live. Our advice is to stay playful, be curious and have an open mind. The website is 100% free for explorers and can be found at www.missionexplore.net.
