Want to take your engagement with air and space content anytime and anywhere?  

Our Anytime Scavenger Hunt competitions are aligned with our Anytime Expedition content and STEAM Labs challenge students to demonstrate what they know about the topics in a way that embraces creativity and multiple learning styles. These scavenger hunts are flexible enough to be done on-site during a visit to the Museum or can be completely remote.  

How To Reserve Your Scavenger Hunt

To register for an Anytime Scavenger Hunt, pick a start date for your experience within the registration form. The start date will determine the window of time your students may participate and be scored in the virtual game corresponding with your experience.

You and your students will have access to the game during a two-week period that starts on the date you selected as part of your registration.  You can request to modify the period by emailing nasmfieldtrips@si.edu.
