At The Treasure Hunt Builder we use device-free adventures to encourage students to apply and practice their STEM knowledge. Our treasure hunts are quick to set up and designed to engross students in at least an hour of fun so they learn naturally and creatively, improving their attention and retention.
Use a treasure hunt to help your student develop a conceptual understanding of STEM subjects, like math and coding, and encourage their natural curiosity for exploring and discovering new ideas.

All the while applying your knowledge of science, math and coding! Venture forth on a quest for STEM!

Need it right now?

Download a STEM treasure hunt immediately after check-out, print and set up for your students in under 10 minutes. No cutting, gluing, or other prep is required. And easy instructions for quickly hiding the clues are included.

Need some space?

Each treasure hunt takes about 1 to 2 hours to complete. That's 8 hours of STEM adventuring for your student while you focus on other things!


No problem! These educational treasure hunts get students off of their devices and moving around as they solve STEM challenges and hunt for their next clue.

Is it hard to get your student interested?

Play enhances curiosity. Our adventure storylines draw students in, applying gamification to STEM concepts, because nothing is quite as motivating as a quest!
