Several teachers at Laney have used the GooseChase App for Scavenger Hunts and I've had the pleasure of being a part of the hunts.

Here is an introductory article from Nick LaFavre at EdTechPicks.org, 'Scavenger Hunts that Your Student Will Love - Goose Chase

If you've used them, let me know so I can add you to the list of 'evangelists/experts' below.

"Breakout EDU creates ultra-engaging learning games for people of all ages. Games (Breakouts) teach teamwork, problem solving, critical thinking, and troubleshooting by presenting participants with challenges that ignite their natural drive to problem-solve.

Breakouts are perfect for classrooms, staff training, dinner parties...can be used to teach core academic subjects including math, science, history, language arts and have embedded standards that apply problem solving strategies within a real world OR collaborative context.


With the purchase of a Breakout kit, you’re able to play countless Breakouts. Each kit comes with a collection of locks, hidden contraptions, timers, keys, and other “diversion hardware” that can be used to play the Breakout challenges available from the store.  Currently, all the games in the game directory are free!
