Scratch Animation Competition for Primary Schools in Wales
Kano – ‘A Computer Anyone Can Make’.
Pi-top – ‘We Make The Future’.
Make a 90 second animation in one of the following two categories:
- A poem by Eurig Salisbury. Eurig was the Welsh Children’s Laureate 2011-13.
- A Welsh Myth (e.g. from the Mabinogion).
Eurig has given us two different poems for this year’s contest:
Dad, I like your hair,
Dad … can I have a little horse
Can I Dad? One with a cute nose
Can I, Dad? One with a silk coat
A mighty horse that jumps up high …
If you’ll say yes then, Dad, I swear
Wilbert the Wizard
Wilbert the wizard was wise,
Wilbert the wizard was skilled,
Wilbert the wizard was grand,
Wilbert the wizard was bright,
But then he choked on a tiny nut
And that was it.
Across the two entry categories we will select the best four entries. Each winning entry will win either a Kano Computer Kit or a Pi-top Laptop.
Each winning entry will also win a free ‘Coding Day’ for their primary school. For the ‘Coding Day’ Aberystwyth University Computer Science Department will come to the primary school and deliver a day of coding workshops.
All prizes for winning submissions will be delivered to the primary school listed in the submission.
