An iBeacon-powered scavenger hunt for students at Pellissippi State Community College. Participants solve clues leading them to specific areas on campus. iBeacons are used to determine a participant’s proximity to clue destinations. When a destination is found, the in-app camera functionality activates, allowing the student to record their progress by taking a picture. At the end of the hunt, students submit their results to earn extra credit.

I created this app as an extension of the QR Quest project after receiving 10 iBeacons for testing on campus. I presented a session on the development of this app at the Innovations conference in Boston (March 8-11, 2015). Click here to download presentation materials from that session.
