Learn, Compete, and Win with the Michigan Learning Channel

We’re using the app Goosechase to bring students, families, schools and more a new way to watch your favorite MLC shows and earn prizes with learners across the state! Track your progress using missions, earn points based on how many missions you complete, and see how you stack up to other students in four age brackets. At the end of the challenge, redeem your points for prizes! The challenge runs from March 4 – April 29, 2024. See how many points you can get!

And There are Prizes?

That’s right! There will be weekly prize drawings each week for all 8 weeks of the challenge. Everyone who completes at least 1 mission during the week is eligible for that week’s drawing. The winner of each drawing will win an Amazon Fire Tablet!

Teaching With the Learn Everywhere Challenge

Educators can compete in the challenge with their class, or use our missions as teaching activities. Educators that fill out our sign up form will receive a teaching kit with mission tracker booklets and more!

How it Works

Adults sign up for one of four experiences based on the age of their participating students. Every week starting on March 4, new missions will appear to encourage students to keep learning and earning points. Missions never expire, so it’s easy to catch up no matter when you join. Each experience will have different video and activity missions built around MLC series, with bonus missions for more points and more fun!

How to Join

There are two ways to participate in the Learn Everywhere Challenge. You can join by downloading the Goosechase app and competing in real time, or by playing offline using our printable missions tracker. Players using the print version will submit their points totals at the end of the challenge. Follow the instructions below to compete using the app.

Download The App

  1. Download the Goosechase iOS or Android app.
  2. Log in. New to Goosechase? Sign up for an account or play as a guest.

Decide How to Compete

  1. Students can compete as individuals by having the account owner (a parent or teacher) join the experience(s) corresponding to their student’s grade(s). This works best for families with participating students in different grade brackets.
  2. Classrooms, Organizations, and families with multiple children in the same grade bracket can play as a team. The account owner can join the experience(s) corresponding to their students’ grades and use their discretion when to mark missions complete. For families, we recommend requiring all students in an age bracket to complete the mission before checking it off. For large groups, we suggest only requiring a simple majority.
