The Teleporter Adventures

Agency: M&C Saatchi


The Teleporter Adventures is a storybook and companion VR experience. It was designed bring Start Smart financial lessons to life in a fun and engaging way. Start Smart is a free financial education program funded by CommBank and offered to more than 550,000 students in Australia each year. Our brief was to make these award-winning classes more accessible in remote areas of Australia, and create a new, more engaging way for kids to learn about finance. The book makes use of 'The Teleporter’, a Start Smart branded, Google cardboard VR headset that teleports the kids into the different worlds within the storybook. The first book, aimed at 6-7 year olds follows the story of Sammy the Space Koala, a koala who travels through the galaxy in search of a magical present for her Grandma’s birthday. Throughout the journey kids are invited to participate in virtual reality experiences, learning important lessons around financial ‘needs’ and ‘wants’. Taken directly from the Start Smart curriculum.
