Codebank success at Games Jam

Our P7 team of coders - Ziad, Erin, Jamie and Maham, had a fantastic day at the School of Computing in Dundee University on Friday. 

They competed against 60 children from 15 schools in Dundee to create a computer game in two and a half hours.  Following judging by industry experts three teams went to a presentation and voting round.  In this round the teams had to present their game to all the children and adults in the lecture theatre. There was then an electronic vote.There was very stiff competition from Claypotts Castle and Craigowl in the final vote, but Rosebank were the winners!  

They were presented with the Games Jam Trophy, prizes and cerificates.  Later they appeared on STV news and they were also in the Courier.  Congratulations on Twitter came from as far away as Code Club in Australia!

The win is a tribute to their teamwork, planning, concentration, graphic skills, coding knowledge, problem solving and confident speaking.  All skills for life and work which were in evidence throughout the competition.  Well done team Codebank!
