ANS Explore

ANS Explore

ANS Explore! is a mobile app for the Academy of Natural Sciences that guides visitors on a quest to find “escaped” butterflies located throughout the museum. Players scan the butterfly-shaped QR codes to earn badges and unlock interesting information about the animals, habitats and other features of the exhibits. The app also offers butterfly illustrations to color, as well as a butterfly-catching game that you can play anywhere. ANS Explore! engages visitors on a quest to uncover hidden secrets in the exhibits and to earn virtual badges while making discoveries.

The app was designed to be updated and adjusted as the exhibits change. The current theme of the scavenger hunt is “capturing escaped butterflies,” which correlates with the Academy’s Butterflies! exhibit.

ANS Explore! is available for Android and iOS operating systems and can be downloaded at the AppStore or GooglePlay.
