What is The Master Chef Murder?

The Master Chef Murder is an iPad app that provides teachers with a dynamic resource to engage students in a wide range of curriculum activities through gamificiation - ie solving the case!

All aspects of the murder mystery - the evidence, video interviews, images, interactive widgets and engaging puzzles are accessed in the app. The contents of the game are triggered in different locations by BlueTooth iBeacons that are supplied in the purchasable Murder Mystery Box.

FAQs

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Email joemoretti@mac.com.

Will iPads be supplied?

No. Attendees need to bring an iPad with the free Master Chef app installed.

How many students can I bring?

There is no limit (within reason) to the number students that you can bring, we nominally suggest a maximum of 20. You should note that they remain under your supervision whilst atteding the event.

I am concerned my iPad is too old, how can I check whether it is suitable?

iBeacons will work with any iPad from iPad 3 onward. However the more recent the model of iPad the better the experience! Any iPad from iPad Air onward will work perfectly with a high quality experience.
