Fossil Discovery Adventure App

Fossil Discovery Adventure App was launched as a first-of-its-kind augmented reality experience for visitors to Morden’s Canadian Fossil Discovery Centre (“CFDC”). The app allows users to collect AR fossils throughout CFDC by finding digital “dig sites” and applying their knowledge of the exhibits to the app’s built-in trivia game.
