First, students are shown a movie. Then, students join the story through real-world games. The movie tells the story of a threat targetting our world. Students must join a resistance to defeat the threat. To win the game, teens must learn skills, develop creativity, and find their inner hero. This concept is called an alternate reality game (ARG).
HOW TEENS BECOME HEROES & SAVE THE WORLD:
1) STEPS TO START THE GAME
Our movies are fast-paced narrative feature films that revolve around a social issue that affects teens.
A free mobile app guides teens through the game. It provides them with clues, missions, and knowledge about the issue.
Students learn about the issue and how it affects their world. Content includes videos, social media, and more.
2) WEEKLY STEPS
Teens receive weekly missions to fight the threat. Missions take place in the real world.
Students must complete each mission by the end of the week. Students upload a photo to the app.
3) STEPS TO FINISH THE GAME
To win the game and defeat the threat, students must finish 6 missions in 6 weeks.
Missions must meet school guidelines and be reviewed before students win rewards.
The more missions a student completes, the greater the reward they receive.
