Summer Reading Challenge x StoryTrails

StoryTrails is a unique, immersive storytelling experience. It aims to allow local people to experience their town in a completely new way through immersive technology, including augmented and virtual reality. People will be able to use this new technology to travel back in time, experiencing untold histories from their local community.

The Summer Reading Challenge is an annual reading engagement programme delivered by The Reading Agency. It aims to tackle the summer reading ‘dip’ by encouraging children aged 4 – 11 to read for pleasure over the summer holidays by setting a reading target, reading their books and receiving rewards and incentives along the way. The theme for this year’s Challenge is ‘Gadgeteers’. Developed in collaboration with the Science Museum Group, the Challenge will show children that science is all around us every day and
inspire them to unleash their curiosity and creativity!

This pack brings together StoryTrails and the Summer Reading Challenge, providing activities to help children and young people explore the themes
of innovation, technology and immersive storytelling. So, what do we mean when we say ‘immersive storytelling’?
