Posted by:

With the busy end of the academic year rapidly approaching, we thought that it might be useful to remind schools that the closing date for our Create a Digital Game Competition is now a little over  two weeks away – Friday, the 14th of July 2017.

Full details of the competition are reproduced below for your information:

As learning to code is an important part of the Computing Curriculum, we thought that it would be good if our last competition of the year was to create a simple digital game.

This has been an extremely popular competition which we have held annually, over the last three years. We welcome entries using coding applications such as: Scratch, Kodu, 2Simple 2Code and Hopscotch for iPads.

We feel that this competition provides an excellent opportunity for children to further their programming ability and that it will also, hopefully, ignite their creativity.

The competition is for Key Stage Two children and, in addition to providing a vehicle for them to create an enjoyable digital game of their own, it will also allow them to further hone their program writing and debugging skills.

In addition, to the above computing benefits, your school could possibly win our star prize, which is a one year Zu3D Multi Platform Site Licence ( allowing you to put the fantastic Zu3D animation software on all your computers and iPads, as well as enabling your students to install it at home), kindly donated by Zu3D. 

The runner up school will receive a free 123ICT pupil workshop for your school!

Closing date for the competition is Friday 14th of July 2017.
