Join us for fun in learning with scratch and building your own projects according to our ‘Secret Theme’!
Overview: Participants will use Scratch to develop an E-rated, school appropriate game or animation that focuses on the subject of their choice while incorporating the secret theme given at the time of competition. The project should run smoothly, and show thought and planning of coding. Submitted games should also be intellectually challenging.
Theme: Will be Revealed on the day of competition.
