GeoBee Challenge

Do you have what it takes to be the next National Geographic Bee Champion? Find out the fun way with the new GeoBee Challenge! Three types of game play make sure you really know your stuff and never get bored.


In the multiple-choice round, answers come from a library of more than 1000 National Geographic Bee questions. In the map challenge round, you zoom, pinch, and tap your way to find spots on an interactive map from a catalog of 1000+ locations. For an added challenge, bonus rounds include compelling National Geographic photographs where you have to locate what's in the photo on the interactive map...only we don't tell you where the photo was taken or what is in the picture!

The faster you answer, the more points you get! You have to keep up the pace to move on to the next round.

Use this app as a fun study guide for the National Geographic Bee. Need help studying? Try out National Geographic’s World Atlas app, too!
