AGENTS OF DISCOVERY
We are so excited to have partnered with Agents of Discovery to make this mobile phone application available to our young guests.Created primarily for elementary age children, this app uses augmented reality that uses the garden along with interactive games to get them engaged, moving and learning throughout the eight-acre scientific garden’s 17 outdoor learning galleries. This popular app is already being used by many outdoor parks such as Texas Parks and Wildlife, National Parks Service, National Mall in Washington, D.C. and Southern California Parks.
You can download it from the Google Play App Store or Apple App store before arriving, or wait until you are in the Rory Meyers Children's Adventure Garden, where we have free wi-fi and volunteers ready to show you how to download the app and dive into an immersive world of exciting, educational adventures throughout our garden.
