Game Story

You play an adventurer who just got invited to join a secret group of explorers and scientists. Your guide: a puffin who helps you in your quest, but mostly just wants snacks.

What you do:

  • take on quests at GPS-based locations called Science Stations
  • visit GPS-based tour stops
  • collect virtual notes hidden in caches
  • sort the notes and grow your field guide
  • take photos and make your own observations


In The Station Maine, each quest starts at a partner location in rural Maine. The partner locations are organizations working on concrete solutions that most kids would never get to interact with at this level. The content of individual quests was created by scientists and STEM education specialists at MMSA and their partners.
