Explore Newstead Abbey in our interactive tour and collect ideas for characters, plot and story amongst its rooms and histories. Students will then use Twine, a program that lets you create your own online adventure stories, to create an interactive digital story.

Will an alien race take over the abbey, Byron come face to face with ghosts or Ada save the world through her mathematical genius, what will your story be?

Students will develop their digital literacy skills and learn how to create and build their own online digital story. They will enhance their computational thinking by learning how to code using simple macros and incorporate name recognition, inventory, variables, syntax, and more.
