The game’s afoot!

This week saw the launch of our new interactive multimedia detective adventure based on our detective hero ‘Sherkey Flatts’ and his challenge of solving ‘the mystery of the disappearing iPad.’ This is a web based interactive adventure allowing children to access ‘clues’ from a variety of digital media and using a lot of inference and deduction to attempt to solve the mystery. This adventure is aimed at Y5 and Y6 children and will be run for the next four weeks.

Sherkey Flatts and his brilliant assistant Javeira Voltson need your help!

They have been asked to solve the mystery of the disappearing iPad and are looking for volunteers to help them.

Glenn Thompson has contacted the police to report having his iPad stolen. He was at the dentists and left it by the side of the chair in the waiting room. There were four other people in the waiting room and the receptionist Sandra Rhodes. Your task, should you have the courage to help our detective duo, is to work with Sherkey and Javeria to solve the case and get the iPad back to Glenn as quickly as possible.

Sherkey believes this could be one of his biggest challenges yet, bigger even than the mystery of the dog that spoke Spanish and the case of the baby who sang like Elvis. He is very keen to enrol the help of schools across the region to help him as associate detectives but he wants to make sure that the detectives have good mental agility and excellent logical reasoning skills. This week’s activities are a test to see if you have what it takes to become an associate detective to help solve the crime.
