Smithsonian Quests!

You have got to check this out!

The Smithsonian has launched a Quests Program to encourage students to discovery and collaborate.

Through the Smithsonian Center for Education and Museum Studies, they have created the Quests Program a digital badge program designed to foster project-based learning and inspire students to explore their own ideas and interests.  Students can earn digital badges by completing a series of online activities and submit their work for review by Smithsonian education experts.  The quests engage students to explore a topic of interest either as part of a formal standards-aligned curriculum or as a student-driven after school activity. 

Check out the Quests Program website and encourage your students to explore and earn the badges!
