Enhance Student Teamwork and Collaboration with SDG-Inspired Puzzle Field Trips

In the ever-evolving world of education, nurturing critical thinking and collaboration in students isn’t just a trend – it’s a necessity. When approached with care and creativity, it can transform the learning experience. That’s where School Tantei SDG comes in. Our dynamic and interactive field trips are designed to bring students together, challenging them with puzzles that inspire teamwork and sustainable thinking. Join us in building a brighter, more sustainable future for our learners.

Transforming School Events: From Traditional Activities to Impactful, SDG-Driven Learning Experiences

Traditional school events such as barbecues and hikes, while fun, often lack depth and fail to stimulate intellectual growth or global awareness in students.

This approach can lead to missed opportunities for students to actively engage with complex problems and understand their role in shaping a sustainable future.

Invite Japan’s School Tantei SDG program fills this gap. Our unique field trips foster teamwork and engage students on  Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), preparing them for a future where they will be the ones shaping the world.

Fostering Teamwork

The program is structured to promote cooperation among students. As they work together to solve the puzzles, they will  learn the importance of teamwork.

The result is a more cohesive, collaborative student body.

SDGs teamwork

Promoting Global Awareness

The integration of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into our program helps students understand their role in global sustainability. They get to  learn about the 17 SDGs set by the United Nations and how these goals are interconnected. Through this, they can begin to see how their actions can impact these global goals. This awareness will foster a sense of global citizenship and responsibility. It encourages them to think about how they can contribute to a sustainable future.

Preparing for the Future

By engaging with SDGs, students will be better equipped for a future where they will be the ones shaping the world. In our programs, they will learn about the global challenges that we face, and the goals that we need to solve them. They will understand that they too have a role to play in achieving these goals. This understanding will empower them to take action and make a difference. It also prepares them to be the leaders and change-makers of tomorrow.

SDGs for the future

Boosting Communication Skills

Our program encourages students to communicate effectively while they work together to solve puzzles. They will learn to listen to each other’s ideas, express their own thoughts clearly, and negotiate solutions. This process enhances skills that are essential for teamwork and leadership. As a result, students will become more confident and effective communicators and leaders. They will also learn the value of diverse perspectives and collaborative problem-solving.


Promoting Physical Activity

The field trips involve moving around and exploring different locations. This aspect of the program encourages physical activity, which is beneficial for students’ health and well-being. It also adds an element of fun and adventure to the learning experience. Students get to learn in an active, dynamic way, which can be more engaging than traditional classroom learning. This active learning approach also helps students retain information better, and creates more memorable and lasting experiences with their classmates.

Enhancing Critical Thinking

The puzzles in our program are designed to enhance problem-solving skills. Students are presented with challenges that they need to solve using their critical thinking skills. In this program, students will learn how to analyze problems, consider different solutions, and make decisions. This process not only helps them solve the puzzles but also equips them with skills that are essential for real-world situations. As a result, students will become better problem solvers and critical thinkers.

Local Area Exploration

The scavenger hunts in our program encourage students to explore and appreciate their local areas. The program provides the chance to discover local landmarks, cultural curiosities, and public art that they might have overlooked. This exploration fosters a sense of community and place, and it helps students understand the history and culture of local areas, while also encouraging them to think about how they can contribute to their communities.

Move, think, learn! for your next field trip, class trip or school excursion

Nowadays it may be difficult to go on a regular class trip or excursion. It might also be a good time to think about new activities for school trips. That’s why we have developed this new program. It allows classes to gain a fresh perspective on places nearby and deepen their understanding of the world and their impact on society, while giving them a chance to move around outside, explore and have fun. 

Gain new awareness about an area close by while having fun solving puzzles.

Scavenger hunts make people see the world a little bit differently. They utilize small details, cultural curios, and public art and monuments that often get overlooked. Stopping to notice these elements by solving puzzles can give students a whole new perspective and appreciation for a certain area, and can broaden and change their way of thinking and looking at the world. 

Experience the societal connection with SDGs + Scavenger Hunt

Learning = knowledge + awareness + action. In-school learning is based on inspiring action through students using their brains. Invite Japan’s scavenger hunt program brings students outside the class, giving them the opportunity to touch and experience the world that they are learning about, as well as the chance to feel that they are connected to society and have the power to shape and create it.

Deepen the relationships among classmates with problem-solving communication

People become involved and immersed in puzzles once they start doing them. You’ll often hear things like “I can’t believe it, it was there in front of us the whole time!” “I knew it!” “Oh we were so close!” from players. Because they are so involved in the puzzles, students will become more open, and communication and bonding will naturally flow. As a result, classmates will form deeper and stronger relationships, and create fun new memories.
