Launching on Saturday 9 July and finishing on Saturday 3 September

Join the Gadgeteers for the Summer Reading Challenge to discover the amazing science and innovation behind the world around you, including some of your favourite things!

This year’s Challenge is a celebration of science and innovation in partnership with the Science Museum Group.

How to take part for ages 4 to 11

  1. Sign up at your local library to take part in this year’s Challenge and receive a Gadgeteers collector poster
  2. Children set their reading goal (we suggest six books) and borrow and read library books of their own choice during the summer, collecting special stickers to complete their poster
  3. Children who complete the Summer Reading Challenge are presented with a certificate and a medal

Children can carry on with the fun at home online at Summer Reading Challenge.

Pre-school Mini Challenge

The pre-school card is suitable for children aged 3 years and under and is a great way to encourage families with younger children to regularly borrow and read books over the summer, especially if older siblings are taking part in the main Challenge. The card also contains some fun activities.
