The Old North Foundation announces the launch of Prince’s Prowl, an object-based interactive game for mobile devices designed to encourage intergenerational learning in a fun and quirky way at the Old North Church. Prince the cat, a North End neighborhood celebrity and widely photographed feline (#wheresprince), plays virtual host as he takes visitors on the hunt for treasures inside the historic church. Prince’s Prowl focuses on unique objects often overlooked by visitors and purposefully excludes any mention of Paul Revere’s ride in order to demonstrate the interesting hidden stories in items like foot warmers, flags, and 17th century Baroque wooden angels. The challenges include multiple choice questions, photos and selfless, and creative open answer. Recently featured in The Boston Globe, the game results from a project originally begun by Phillippa Pitts (now with the Portland Museum of Art) and finished by Old North’s Director of Education Erin Wederbrook Yuskaitis and Green Door Lab‘s Kellian Adams.
