Boots Soltan Sun Ready has launched the brand new Soltan Sun Ready Challenge app, a fun and interactive way to learn about sun safety. With summer fast approaching, Boots Soltan Sun Ready has developed the Soltan Sun Ready Challenge app to support teachers and parents when encouraging Primary school pupils to protect their skin and stay safe in the summer sun.

Available on the App Store and Google Play, the app uses augmented reality, videos and interactive challenges to bring the topic of sun safety to life. The app consolidates pupils’ learning about sun safety while encouraging outdoors activity and a spirit of exploration. Pupils will complete a series of five challenges, including wacky selfies, puzzles and games, all while learning how to stay safe in the sun.

Clare O’Connor, Boots’ skincare innovation expert, said: “I am delighted that Boots Soltan Sun Ready is launching such an innovative way to get children involved with sun protection and skin care. The app will provide an interactive and fun way of learning how to stay safe in the sun, and the importance of protecting your skin even when the weather is overcast. I am confident that this will be the perfect learning tool for both teachers and parents to share with children.”

The Soltan Sun Ready Challenge app supports invaluable tools and online resources provided for free by Boots Soltan Sun Ready, including ideas for Sports Days, Summer Fairs and whole-school assemblies.

Boots Soltan Sun Ready is specially designed to support teachers and parents of Primary school-age children during sun safety education. All the resources are free, curriculum-linked and suitable for use across Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 for Science, PSHE, English and Geography. To share your school's sun safety story via social media, use the hashtag #SoltanSunReady.
