The NATIONAL PRESIDENT’S PROJECT is the funding of a Spy Adventure “App” for Smartphones to be used by visitors at Mount Vernon historical site.
Targeted to guests ages 11-15 years, the adventure involves finding objects, characters, and locations that will trigger responses, clues, and challenges on the user’s Smartphone. The activity educates users about Washington’s role in espionage during the Revolution, while allowing them to interact with the estate (Mount Vernon) like never before.
Emphasis each year will be placed on the technology available to enhance the interest in America’s beginnings as an independent nation. This first year emphasis will be placed on the following committees:
- Colonial and Genealogical Records
- Patriotic Education
- Veterans’ Services
- National Awards
