Time Trek is an exciting place-based educational game played on location at Harpers Ferry National Park in West Virginia. You must be an approved educational institution with a valid access code to play.
Working together as a team, students are transported back in time to experience the characters, stories and events that make up the rich heritage of Harpers Ferry during the Civil War. With the phone as a guide, students play different roles while exploring the park. GPS hotspots alert the team when they’ve discovered important information, new items to collect, and new story narratives. Ultimately each student learns the history of their character and works with their team to make important decisions that could change the course of history.
Time Trek is a catalyst for learning that helps students understand and empathize with the important characters and difficult choices they made in the fight from civil war to civil rights.
