    This activity requires a bit of prep
    Decide on your clues - clues can be a mix of text riddles and websites, or email addresses with auto reponses.
    Create QR codes with clues embedded using a generator.
    Post the clues around your office, school, or all over your neighborhood or city


    Divide the group into teams. Make sure each team has an internet equipped phone that can correctly scan a test QR code (and it's a good idea for each group to have a backup as well). Send them out to scan the codes and solve the puzzles.
