The National Scratch Coding Competition was held at the University of Limerick, bringing together the top scoring teams from all over the country. School students aged six and up across five age categories were invited to demonstrate their Scratch projects to the judges.
This year saw over 160 entries nationwide to the competition. According to Clare McInerney, Lero’s EPE Programme Manager, “The standard for this year’s competition has been incredibly high, it was a very difficult task for our judges this year. I want to say a huge congratulations to everyone that took part in this year’s competition. The Scratch programme provides young students with real, hands-on coding experience and highlights how important it is our everyday lives.”
