For your STEM Curriculum
Create augmented reality games (Missions) that make it possible for students to learn on the go.
• Can be used in any classroom, from art to science
• Identify works of art, take photos of specific tree features, or listen to words in a new language
• Content library contains hundreds of curriculum-aligned, educator-created, ready-to-use Challenges
• Create your own Challenges for a Mission
• Access content from Harvard University’s Encyclopedia of Life
• Preview the Mission in the Agents of Discovery® mobile app, return to the Mission Maker to make changes, then publish it to the app for students to download
• Students play the Mission in the area you choose, solving educational Challenges based on their surroundings
• Students can design their own augmented reality games with user-friendly dashboard
• Dashboard also provides at-a-glance analytics for formative and summative assessment of student progress
• Adjust your lessons based on real-time data
• Once students have downloaded the game, a Wi-Fi® or data connection is not needed to play

Some uses across the curriculum include:
• STEM - Students build on their own technical skills by creating their own augmented reality games. They also will be able to see math concepts within the context of the real world and engage with math lessons like never before.
• Art Education - Inspires students to create, whether they’re learning about art history or taking photos of crafts they’ve created.
• Literacy - Improve reading and literacy skills with hands-on, real-world activities.
• Physical Education - The mobile game gets students moving.

Here’s what others are saying about the Agents of Discovery® Educational Platform:
“It’s been an amazing experience watching my students get excited about the curriculum and become species experts. Game-based learning is incredibly effective, and I’m glad we are using Agency of Discovery® as another one of our tools to educate kids.” - 7th and 8th Grade Science Teacher, Robert C. Fisler School

“Using the Discovery Agents app and mission builder invited kids to understand a number of different skill sets. Not only did they need the research behind the information they were providing in the missions but they needed to understand how to engage users in different types questioning in their challenges. Creating a healthy competition amongst students to not only play the game but create the challenges and put them into the missions kept students engaged for weeks. Utilizing the game aspects, along with outdoor and active learning was a great way to engage students and others who tried out our missions.” - 4th Grade Teacher

“FSD continuously works to empower students’ voice and choice, and the use of technology helps students work toward their goals. As educators, we strive to find new resources and opportunities to reach students.” - Superintendent, Fullerton School District

“When making these Missions, there were a lot of different things you could do. One of my favorite things was to actually make the questions and express myself creatively.” - Grade 7 Student, Fullerton School District

Company details

The Smart Shopper’s Choice for 75 Years
Nasco was started in 1941 by a vocational agricultural teacher, Norman Eckley.

By developing several teaching aids to use in his vocational agriculture classes he answered the question of where to find instructional materials not readily available from any other source. This simple act of providing innovative solutions to classroom needs continues to drive what we do and has become a mission for the dedicated employees of Nasco.

Growing from a simple operation in a two-car garage, Nasco has grown to an enterprise publishing over 35 different catalogs, with an annual circulation exceeding 5 million, to customers in education, agriculture, healthcare training, and lab sampling worldwide featuring materials available for a wide array of educational, training, and production needs.

More than 75 years after Norman Eckley published his first catalog, Nasco’s family of brands continues to passionately serve the needs of professionals worldwide.
