Urban Detectives for Schools and Youth Groups

If you would like to use Urban Detectives with your class or youth group this guide will help you build your project.

Why use Urban Detectives?

Using Urban Detectives, our project crowd sourcing platform, young people share their pictures, sketches, measurements, facts and memories of a building or place with others through the National Record of the Historic Environment (CANMORE). 

The National Record of the Historic Environment is vast archive full of information about the archaeology and architecture of Scotland which we would like schools, youth groups and community groups to contribute to.
