The Scratch National Competition in Ireland is brought to you by the Irish Computer Society team that brings you Tech Week. Scratch is a visual programming language that makes it easy for young people to create their own interactive stories, animations, games, music and art – and share their creations on the web.
The competition is open to students in primary and second level schools in Ireland, and to students attending after-school coding clubs such as Coderdojo. Projects can be about anything the only limit is students imagination.
Schools and clubs all over Ireland are now invited to register and take part in this year’s competition. The closing date for receipt of Scratch projects is Friday 12th March 2021.
All participants in the competition will receive a Scratch participation cert with the top projects going through to a grand final, taking place during Tech Week 2021, where the overall national winners will be announced.
