Using gaming to get kids exploring outdoors is an ideal way to connect technology and nature, and this app can do just that on trips to national forests and other special sites. The missions on Agents of Discovery encourage kids to dig deeper into an area and learn more about some specific plants, animals, and more around them. The companion web-based Agents of Discovery Mission Maker empowers schools and others to make their own missions, too, using a tiered pricing model. So, while it's not super easy (or cheap) for parents to create missions on their own, it's possible to explore what's available in your location or pay the mission-creation fee with some other parents to make some missions in your neighborhood. Mostly, however, if you check out the list of places where missions already exist, you can add a fun adventure to a family trip.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
