Having worked diligently on their Scratch games and applications since September, and armed with explanatory posters and their Design Process log to show all the work that went into the design of these computer games, the TYs were ready to face the SciFest judges on Wednesday, 19th December.

There were 10 groups and 10 different games coded in Scratch. Each group worked very hard on their code to create a game using Scratch. Lots of problem solving was done to work things out. Detailed posters were created and the Design Process log was diligently filled in throughout the process.

Hugo Rowsome, Project Manager for SciFest, judged all the groups on the day. 1st prize was awarded to Rebecca, Siuin and Valery; 2nd prize was awarded to Josh, Alexey and Max. 

The next step for these prize winners is to participate in the SciFest@Colleges competition which will be held in early May in the IT Blanchardstown (now a part of the Technological University Dublin). Well done to all!
