Do you know where shrapnel fell on Kensington during the First World War? That the Suffragettes started a nursery for WWI orphans near Notting Hill, or why Rodin gave eighteen of his sculptures to the V&A during the war?
You can find out all this and more by downloading the interactive scavenger hunt/ tour guide app ‘Huntzz’ on your smart device.
Designed in conjunction with local cadets, this interactive online walk (with ten clues for you to solve along the way) showcases the World War One history of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.
The 236 cadets, pictured above with their leader, braved the late evening darkness to help map the World War One sites they’d researched so as to turn this information into a guided online walk of World War One heritage around the borough.
At Brompton Library we’re holding regular Mythical Maze iPad sessionsevery Thursday 3.30 to 5pm so the kids can use our lovely new iPads to play with the Mythical Maze augmented reality app!
You can download the app onto any smart device to make the mythical monsters come alive and tell their story. Kids love seeing Nessie loom out of the lake and Medusa’s snake-hair fall out! Thereare also games involving the creatures for younger users.
