One-off competition invites children in Great Yarmouth to build a robot on a virtual scavenger hunt and discover the world of science this summer
On 12th October 2016, all eyes will turn to Wonderlab: The Statoil Gallery opening at the Science Museum in London. To celebrate its launch, families in Great Yarmouth are invited to embark on an exciting geo-location scavenger hunt, where they will be in with a chance of winning an exclusive private view of Wonderlab. The new gallery is designed to ignite interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) while enjoying a fun day out. With more than 50 spectacular cutting edge exhibits, such as a giant interactive orrery, live shows, and immersive experiences, Wonderlab is set to wow the whole family.
Curious at heart and on a mission to teach children the wonders of science, #Wondroid is a friendly robot built by engineers at energy provider, Statoil. Unfortunately, #Wondroid has lost some of his robot body parts.
To enter the competition, families located close to the Statoil’s offices in London, Aberdeen, and Great Yarmouth, should simply visit the Statoil webpage where they can download a free app to their mobile device and watch the story unfold with #Wondroid in any one of the three Statoil based locations.
Great Yarmouth #Wondroid Challenge
With the school holidays in full swing, keeping the kids entertained can be a full-time job. By following the App’s simple instructions, families can work together to solve three clues provided by #Wondroid. Providing a perfect opportunity to explore the great outdoors, families will need to visit three science-themed landmarks in Great Yarmouth.
In retracing #Wondroid’s steps, children will enjoy moving from one landmark to another in a scavenger hunt for the modern age. Everyone who helps piece #Wondroid back together again will automatically be entered into a prize draw to win tickets to a private view in the opening week of the gallery, as well as a host of other wonderful Wonderlab prizes.
The competition closes on Monday 19th September 2016 and the winners will be announced on Friday 23rd September 2016.
Competition entry is free. For the full competition terms and conditions and prizes please see HERE
