Scavenger Hunt, Geo-caching
UBC’s Department of Forestry has made use of the Questogo mobile application to train forestry students in the identification and evaluation of trees as part of their practical laboratory work. Questogo was developed by the custom mobile application services team at 14 Oranges, and allows the department’s instructors to create scavenger hunts that challenge students to search, evaluate and answer questions on the trees and wildlife in their laboratory environment. The app is open to the public, and can be combined with technologies such as Beacon’s to apply to a wide-range of environments, including museums, festivals and parks.
