"IS THIS REAL...OR IS IT ONLY A GAME?"

This is the question your students will be wondering. The Hexagon Challenge is an educational Alternate Reality Game (ARG) in which students will attempt to solve a mystery by infiltrating a secret society, answering initiation questions regarding history, science, mathematics, world languages, and the arts. They will contact and be contacted by various fictitious characters via email, telephone, and instant messenger who will provide clues that enable them to continue their quest to discover the truth about a mysterious artifact known only as the Hexagon. Up to six extra credit points will be awarded along the way, which can be applied to your course if you so choose.

How can the Hexagon Challenge enhance the learning process for your students?

The Hexagon Challenge encourages students to:

1) Use critical thinking skills.

2) Locate important information using online and real world resources.

3) Utilize creative problem solving.
