History HeroNow that school is back in session, parents are looking for ways to make learning fun. I thought you’d be interested in learning more about History Hero, the first app to use an interactive video game to teach history to children and teenagers as they tour the world’s top historical sites. The app has added new features making it an even better resource for families traveling or exploring their own backyards this fall.

History Hero allows kids of all ages – and their parents – take on interactive missions from the International Committee on Extraterrestrial Threats (ICE-T) to save the world by recording data about important historical artifacts before they are destroyed by evilaliens.

Since its launch, History Hero hasmade exciting enhancements including:

  • Multiple platforms: Now available on Google Play for Android users, in addition to the iTunes Store for iPhone users for only $1.99
  • New locations: Chicago (Art Institute and Field Museum) and Philadelphia (National Constitution Center and Philadelphia Museum of Art), joining London, Rome, New York, Washington D.C. and Minneapolis as mission destinations
  • Additional Missions: New York (Central Park), Washington, D.C.(Jefferson Memorial, Mall and Monuments, National Archives, National Museum of the American Indian, Smithsonian Castle) and Rome (St. Peter’s Square)
  • Increased challenges: Brain Buster trivia questions for tweens and teens (and adults) to make the game experience even more stimulating and challenging
  • More competitors: Players now have the ability to share scores on Game Center to see how they stack up against the competition.

Developed in consultation with some of the top teachers in the U.S., History Hero is the only educational family travel app that brings history to life in a way that guidebooks and audio tours cannot at destinations around the world.
