‘Scratch Off’ is about coding. It is a competition for learners aged between 7 and 11. Our basic premise is to promote ‘Computer Science’ by encouraging learner’s to create a game in MIT’s free Scratch app. Our competition encourages students to imagine, code and learn together.
The ‘Scratch Off 2018’ is a wonderful opportunity for students to explore ‘computational thinking’ and ‘coding skills’ and share a common learning journey. There will be amazing prizes for the best games and our judges will also be rewarding effort. Selected teams will be asked to present to a filled lecture theatre at the University of East Anglia, a priceless experience.
As this competition has been previously oversubscribed we have to insist that all teams have a maximum of two learners per team and that no more than three teams are entered per school. Internal school ‘Scratch Off’ competitions are recommended.
Our ‘Scratch Off’ competition is organised by our hard working Norfolk CAS attendees and the University of East Anglia. It is a diverse team and comprises of University Professors, Lecturers, Undergraduate’s, Secondary/Primary educators, parent’s/carer’s and business partners who all share a passion of promoting Computer Science in schools. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us over at the Norfolk CAS Hub Website
We hope to hear from you soon.
