    Gaming as an Educational Tool: Internet Scavenger Hunt

Program Title:

    SIGKids Interactive Educational Projects



    Go Wild Scavenger Hunt is a web-based educational game for children ages 8-12 that encourages and teaches kids how to explore the Internet through an investigative virtual scavenger hunt. The game technology is transparent, allowing the user, through hands-on experience, to develop an understanding of exactly how computers work. At the same time, the user is introduced to an unfolding world of animal science. Game play is organized to foster self-initiated learning as well as cooperation and communication among participants.
