The Scenario

Kevin Chandler has contacted the police to report having his VR headset stolen. He was at the vets and left it by the side of the chair in the waiting room. There were four people in the waiting room and the receptionist Julia Cole. 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 VR headset back to Kevin as quickly as possible. Sherkey believes this could be one of his biggest challenges yet, bigger even than the mystery of the cat that gave birth to hamsters and the case of the talking Chihuahua. He is very keen to enrol the help of schools across the region to help him as associate detectives.

The adventure starts week commencing 11 June (but you can run the activities any time over the summer if you wish) and ends on 6 July. There are 4 activities including teaching notes and pupil resources available.

Please send all communication about the mystery directly to
