On Friday 13th March, our Digital Leaders will be taking part in a national coding initiative in aid of Red Nose Day called Scratch Your Nose!
What is Scratch Your Nose?
According to the website: "Scratch Your Nose is a fun, exciting and educational event to create video games and raise funds for Comic Relief on Red Nose Day."
This is the second year we will have taken part in Scratch Your Nose Day. The first time was in 2013 when our Digital Leaders helped raise £500 by producing games in Scratch and charging their peers to play at lunchtime and during morning break. This year 360+ schools have already signed up - to register your school simply visit the website and click on 'Get Involved' to find out more.
Don't know how to use Scratch? - not a problem! Scratch is free and easy to use plus there are lots of resources on the ScratchYourNose website to help you on the day. Don't want to use Scratch? - it's not compulsory to use Scratch to make your games - you can use any platform/tool you wish. This year we will be using Microsoft TouchDevelop to create our games. (Resources to follow soon).
