Get Coding with Scratch and WIN!

 

This competition is now closed & winners will be contacted the week of 3rd May. 

Scratch is a fun and easy way to get started with coding. We’ve just finished the America’s Cup so it’s a perfect time to have a go at creating a sailing themed Scratch animation, story or game. Students will learn about digital technology, block coding, problem solving, design and communication while having fun creating entries. With two categories (individual and class) you could win big.
