Event Details

Norfolk Scratch Off Primary 2018 Thursday 21st June 

FINAL CHANCE to register - at this time of year some schools realise that they cannot make the day because of a Sports Day / INSET / Transport etc often leaving opportunities for others. Final confirmation and documents are being processed now, please book or add your school to the waiting list so that you do not miss this opportunity now or at future events

Please register by selecting the number of learners particapating.This is important so that lunch can be provided for all learners. Please do not include teacher and associate staff numbers in registration. The brief for the competition is located here. All Scratch Off 2018 entrants will have the option to take part in a programming challenge set on the day. 

Please note that you can bring along teams to compete in the programming challenge only.

‘Scratch Off’ is about coding. It is a competition for learners aged between 7 and 11. Our basic premise is to promote ‘Computer Science’ by encouraging learner’s to create a game in MIT’s free Scratch app. Our competition encourages students to imagine, code and learn together. 

The ‘Scratch Off 2018’ is a wonderful opportunity for students to explore ‘computational thinking’ and ‘coding skills’ and share a common learning journey.  There will be amazing prizes for the best games and our judges will also be rewarding effort. Selected teams will be asked to present to a filled lecture theatre at the University of East Anglia, a priceless experience.

As this competition has been previously oversubscribed we have to insist that all teams have a maximum of two learners per team and that no more than three teams are entered per school.  Internal school ‘Scratch Off’ competitions are recommended.

Our ‘Scratch Off’ competition is organised by our hard working Norfolk CAS attendees and the University of East Anglia. It is a diverse team and comprises of University Professors, Lecturers, Undergraduate’s, Secondary/Primary educators, parent’s/carer’s and business partners who all share a passion of promoting Computer Science in schools. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us over at the Norfolk CAS Hub Website

We hope to hear from you soon.

Organiser

Computing At School

The Computing At School group (CAS) aims to promote the teaching of Computing at school. CAS was born out of our excitement with our discipline, combined with a serious concern that many students are being “turned off” computing by a combination of factors that have conspired to make the subject seem dull and pedestrian. Our goal is to put the excitement back into Computing at school.  The Computing At School  group (CAS) is a grass roots organisation.
