Just a heads up on a little Scottish success. Pupils from Larbert High School, Falkirk Council, have reached the final of the BAFTA Young Game Designers, Game Concept, competition 2012:
Details of their rather Scottish themed entry can be found on the BAFTA website:
The pupils worked on their entry during a Wider Achievement Opportunity, which runs for senior pupils two periods a week. The classes are organised by Computing Science teachers (Mary MacAskill and Stuart Baird) within the Technologies Faculty of Larbert High School and is inspired by the Computer Games Development award offered by the Scottish Qualifications Authority.
Entries were also made by S2 pupils in the Game Making Award, which had them working with Microsoft Kodu.
I’m wishing the pupils well and keeping my fingers cross.
