"One Small Step..."

Click on the title and go to a site called "We Choose the Moon" -- a presentation on the Apollo 11 mission. This site was created for the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum. Great animation, nice integration of mission information and interactive photo, video and JFK galleries. The mission is divided into 11 parts, and features the authentic sound of Mission Control communicating with the astronauts under the animation.

Smart Phone Scavenger Hunts

Greg Snyder and Myles Nye, aka the Wise Guys, operate a whole range of site-specific “scavenger hunt” style games in the Los Angeles area. Many of these games involve challenges that incorporate the use of smart phone (iPhone or Blackberry) QR tag-reading apps such at Neo Reader or BeeTagg. Check out their site.
