scratchcatNational Scratch Competition Winners

Congratulations to 3 of our TY students who took home not only 1 but 2 prizes from the National Scratch Competition last Wednesday 25th of April in UL. Niamh and Dani won the Best Animation prize out of 502 entrants, for their short animation called 'Behind the Bully'. Dewi took home the best in her category prize for her mini game called 'Clean up the Streets'. Well done to our students and all 31 finalists on the day. 

Since 2007 Lero – the Irish Software Engineering Research Centre has been running an Education and Outreach Program to encourage students to discover and learn about computing and software development. Scratch was developed in MIT and is a visual programming language that makes it easy to create interactive stories, animations, games, music, and art and share these creations on the web.
