Using Google to find Carmen Sandiego seems like cheating

, | News

If you were a kid or parent during the late 1980’s or early 1990’s, you might have fond memories of Carmen Sandiego, a globetrotting ne’er-do-well that was foiled only via the geographical knowledge possessed by elementary school children. The Broderbund classic series of games began with Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego and spanned over a decade of cartoons, books, and other media. Her popularity has waned over the years, but there were sporadic sightings to keep her on 90’s kids’ minds. (She has a Netflix animated series, but her last game sighting was in 2015 when The Learning Company released Carmen Sandiego Returns.) Now, thanks to the magic of Google Earth, you can look for Carmen again! Just go to Google Earth, click the “Catch Carmen Sandiego” button and you’ll be transported on an edutainment adventure.
