GOOSECHASE FREE EDUCATOR'S UPGRADE
Goosechase is a digital scavenger hunt program where advisors can create missions that will engage students through answering questions, taking pictures, creating videos, etc.

In support of teachers, within our community and beyond, Goosechase is offering free-of-charge upgrades to the Educator Plus tier of the GooseChase EDU platform until September 1, 2020 for all K-12 educators.

If you are a teacher looking to utilize this upgrade to engage with students during school shutdowns, please complete the form linked here. Please note that we are processing a high volume of upgrades at this time due to the number of educators seeking a virtual method of engaging with their students from home, and it might take us 24-48 hours to upgrade your account.
