On the 3rd December, Computer Science visited Burnside Business & Enterprise College for the third bronze stage workshop. We began with a general introduction to Computer Science, as Phil informed the students on his experience in the industry and explained what to expect if they were to progress on to the silver stage.
After the introduction, it was on to the computers for a demonstration on how to use Scratch. Scratch is the programme they were to use all morning to create their animations or games. Phil demonstrated elements of the programme to students who had never came across Scratch before and thus, they were able to express their creativity without restriction. Some of the game ideas that they came up with were quite complex and needed more expert advice from Phil to work out how to make them come to life. They all produced a successful game in the morning session and presented their fantastic ideas to Phil.
