Scavenger hunt

Send your students on an online scavenger hunt to learn about engineering and geoscience. This scavenger hunt will take your students across Canada where they will discover what earth materials we mine and how they are used in everyday items. They’ll also explore a variety of engineering marvels and learn about some of Canada’s greatest inventions and how they are used today. Students who complete the scavenger hunt throughout the month of March will be entered into a draw for a prize.

Note that younger students may need help completing the scavenger hunt, but it can still serve as a starting point to introduce younger children to engineering and geoscience.

To embark on the scavenger hunt:

  1. Go to the Apple app store or Google Play store and download the "GooseChase" app for your phone or tablet.
  2. Open the app and create your account.
  3. Search for the game code 3K9458, or search National Engineering and Geoscience Month, and join up. Create a team by pressing Select Team & Join Game. For those planning to participate by themselves, continue as a team of one.
  4. Get started!
