Mission Information

The Teaching Geography is Fundamental (TGIF) Act will fund programs to improve pre-service geography teacher training, integrate geospatial technologies into the K-12 curriculum, and provide teacher professional development in the United States.

US federal education legislation recognizes geography as a “core academic subject” but unlike other core subjects such as history, civics, economics, foreign languages, and the arts, there is no federal funding dedicated to advancing geography education. This prevents students from getting the geography education they need and deserve.
Mission Risk: Low

Low. This should be easy but take care.

Risky business

Doing missions on this website can be dangerous. Always get permission before exploring and make sure your plans are reasonably safe. A place that is safe one moment can become dodgy the next so keep your wits about you. We cannot take any responsibility for any injuries or harmful effects resulting from your actions. It's your job to survive your explorations intact.

To increase your chances of success complete our training and safety tips before starting. That way you are more likely to win points and keep your head on.
