About this game

Hello GeoBee players!

The Android team at National Geographic Society is proud to announce the all-new GeoBee Challenge app for Android!

We have re-built the app from the ground up, improved the map & photos and fixed some pesky bugs. We are so excited to share it with the amazing GeoBee community.

This is a challenging game, so it's not for beginners...but do keep in mind that the National Geographic GeoBee is meant for kids in grades 4-8. Are you smarter than a 4th grader?

Three types of game play make sure you really know your stuff and never get bored.

In the multiple-choice round, answers come from a library of more than 1300 National Geographic GeoBee questions. In the map challenge round, you zoom, pinch and tap your way to find spots on an interactive map from a catalog of 1000+ locations. For an added challenge, bonus rounds include compelling National Geographic photographs where you have to locate what's in the photo on the interactive map...only we don't tell you where the photo was taken or what is in the picture!

The faster you answer, the more points you get! You have to keep up the pace to move on to the next round.

About National Geographic GeoBee:
Each year thousands of schools in the United States participate in the National Geographic Bee using materials prepared by the National Geographic Society. The contest is designed to encourage teachers to include geography in their classrooms, spark student interest in the subject, and increase public awareness about geography. Schools with students in grades four through eight are eligible for this entertaining and challenging test of geographic knowledge.

"GeoBee makes an excellent companion for long train rides or meals with dull people." - Slate

“Grab It. The first day of school is just around the corner. Here (is) an app that can be packed in alongside your kids’ pencils and notebooks.” – New York Daily News

I really like this game. I only wish that after you answer something incorrectly you were able to clearly see the map and/or picture of the correct answer so you could more easily learn. Otherwise I think this is a fabulous way to brush up on geography!

Very, very American focused. References to things like transcontinental railroad without referencing continent or country. Seems like one question every round is about New York. And about a third are about US states.

This mother father is always running in the background. Oh hey I'm gonna do some geography and then close the app when I'm done. WRONG. Even if you close all apps, and use a task killer. Always there, always running uneccessarily. Avoid. There are other apps out there that don't want to harvest your organs but work just the same.
