What's the buzz? Comic strips are just one of the many SmartWork projects kids can make with the assets they gather on their smartphone Quests!

Welcome to Active Explorer, the program that turns your smartphone into a window to discovery!

Educators and scientists log in as Leaders and create Quests, which are like treasure hunts for data.

Players log in as Explorers and go on Quests where they collect images, video, audio, notes, and other data. Then, they go on line to see what they’ve collected, study it, and use it to make posters, comics, slide shows, and other fun SmartWork.
