UNH’s Ocean Discovery Day will take on a new look this year! Instead of our traditional in-person event, we will host the Ocean Discovery Challenge, a marine-focused interactive scavenger hunt! This virtual event will take participants on missions either online or in-person, where they will be challenged to make discoveries about our oceans, seacoast, and estuaries.
The Ocean Discovery Challenge will take place November 1 – 15, 2021.
It is free and open to the public, especially fun for school groups, clubs, and families.
Participants join the scavenger hunt via the smartphone/mobile app GooseChase. The scavenger hunt is a collection of “missions” that participants complete to earn points. Players can track their progress as well as others’ through the online leader board. Those with the most points at the end of the game will be eligible for cool prizes!
How do I play?
Registration information will be available here in October. Until then, be sure to subscribe to our mailing list so that you will receive the latest updates about this year's Ocean Discovery Challenge!
