2014-2015 Workshops: Mobile Scavenger Hunts

Scavenger Hunts

Scavenger hunts are games in which the organizers prepare a list specific items or tasks which individuals or teams gather or perform. The goal is usually to be the first to complete the list, although in a variation on the game, players can also be challenged to complete the tasks in the most creative manner.

Scavenger hunts are an engaging, interactive and fun means of orienting and educating students.
