CityHacks: In Search of Sleep
John Pollock, contributor
Maya finds out that CityHacks is finally here, a coding club for making games and apps. The club meets on Thursdays and Fridays every week from 8pm to midnight. This is a fantastic opportunity for Maya (who’s 13) and her big brother, the only snag is that mom is concerned that the kids would lose too much sleep by joining. Help Maya convince Mom to let her go to CityHacks. Use your digital notebook to collect information that you’ll then use to influence the storyline and help Maya complete her quest. CityHacks: In Search of Sleep, created by Professor John A. Pollock with story by author Kate Messner, is the first in the BiblioTech™ series and is designed to be an interactive reader on STEM concepts and cool bits of biology and science. BiblioTech™ is a platform for enjoying engaging learning experiences through reading, interactive games, videos and more. Learn important stuff, like the science behind why getting enough sleep is so important. And you get to do this while you build your own branching story. Each chapter features a decision point where the reader decides where to go next, creating 100s of variations on the flow of the story.
