Discover Varmints is an interactive scrolling web experience for young people and their families. It allows ‘explorers’ (users) to delve deep into the themes of the well-received children’s book Varmints and behind the scenes of the successful dance theatre production Varmints, which toured the UK in 2013.

Varmints tells the poignant tale of one small creature’s struggle to preserve a world in danger of being lost forever and touches on themes including conservation, environment, citizenship, regeneration, philosophy and alienation.

Targeted at children aged 8 – 15, this family friendly site aims to encourage creative ‘missions’ and discussion around these universal themes. This interactive resource is for fans of the book and production and can also be used as a standalone experience.

Feeding imaginations, discovering possibilities and contemplating creative approaches, the missions (which can also be worked on offline) are uploaded onto the site and linked to a live blog, working across social media platforms. This rewards the ‘explorers’ engagement with an online presentation of their ‘missions’ in the public realm.

Visit www.discovervarmints.com to start your mission.
