New badges will be unlocked when you complete 13,500 activities. Invite your friends and make the magic happen!

If Everyone Completes One Activity…

we will reach our goal!!

You have about 500 activities to go before we release new badges. That may seem like a lot, but we did the math! If each Teen Summer Challenge player completes one activity, just one, we will reach 12,000 in no time!

If you’re trying to figure out which activity to do next, give these a try:

Film a human skateboard using stop-motion animation.

Re-mix a music video.

Create a playlist for you and your friends to dance to.

Film a fake gag reel.

Build a cardboard arcade.

Create your own 2048.

Complete John Green’s Art Assignment.

View and identify distant galaxies. 

Build something to show off at Lakewood’s MakerFEST.

You are so close to unlocking new badges! 

Trust us, it will be worth the wait!
