Discovery Agents is a leader in mobile, augmented reality educational technology, with products and services intended to enhance student and teacher experiences within informal and formal educational settings. With a growing industry demand for diverse science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) professionals, this study proposes to examine the impact of the Discovery Agents Mission Builder tool on STEM learning and perceptions among middle school students. Educational material and assessments will be developed and tested at various sites in Calgary, Alberta and Fullerton, California. Data collected through surveys, interviews and observations will be analyzed and visualized using quantitative and qualitative analytics. The intended outcomes will demonstrate the impact and effectiveness of the Discovery Agents for future classrooms interested in improving STEM education for future generations.
