Go Open with Bay!

Celebrate Open Education Week at Bay College by joining our first ever Goosechase! We'll be hosting the weeklong scavenger hunt on campus to help share our mission of providing a high quality education for our students using free and low cost open source materials.  

What is a Goosechase?

A Goosechase is an interactive scavenger hunt played with the Goosechase app. As a participant, you select missions to complete, submit "evidence" (photo, video, or GPS check-in), and earn points based on those missions. At the end of the week, the person with the most points is named the winner and earns a fabulous prize!


How do you play?

  • Download the Goosechase App.
  • Join the “My Open Bay 2017” game.
  • Use the password “myopenbay”.
  • Complete missions, earn points, and have fun!


  • Missions open at 8 am on March 27.
  • ​Missions end at 3 pm on March 31.
  • Bonus mission points will be awarded after 3 pm on March 31. The winner will be announced shortly after. 
  • All photo submissions should be tasteful.
  • All photos must be available for reuse - if you do not want your image shared publicly, please do not include it. By participating in the game, you are agreeing to openly license your image. For information on licensing, visit
  • The game is open to all Bay College students, staff, and faculty.
