Agents of Discovery

Get ready to explore Alberta Parks and step into the wild in an all new way with Agents of Discovery!

Agents of Discovery is an engaging augmented reality education game that teaches people about a site through fun missions and challenges. Alberta Parks’ missions encourage youth and the young at heart to move, play, and learn in nature as they solve geo-triggered, augmented reality challenges.

Get free app on Google Play or the App Store. All missions are free to play! The app requires no Wi-Fi or data connection after the initial download. Download the app and missions from home because many of our Parks do not have Wi-Fi access.

We’re part of the Alberta Explorer Campaign!

We’ve teamed up with our friends at Agents of Discovery, Edmonton Valley Zoo, Bow Habitat Station, TELUS World of Science Edmonton, Jurassic Forest and the Legislative Assembly of Alberta to bring YOU the Alberta Explorer Campaign! The more Agents of Discovery Missions (games) you complete, the more special-edition stickers you get (one sticker for every Mission!). Complete 3 Missions and receive the Alberta Traveler sticker; complete all Missions and receive the Alberta Explorer sticker. Can you collect them all?
