And the winner is…
Our recent competition, in partnership with Energy Saving Trust and NEST, asked pupils to design their own game, using any programming software, that would make a house more environmentally-friendly.
First Place: Spuddy and Co (Adam, Ethan, Leo, Cerys), St Martin’s Comprehensive School
Second Place: Team Penguin (Tilda and Oscar), homeschooled
Third Place: Tech & Co (Jack, Dawid and Jack), Milford Haven School
The winning game will be published on the Energy Saving Trust website and the winners received a £100 One4All voucher for themselves and £2,000 for their school to spend on equipment. The first runners-up each received a £25 voucher for themselves and £1,000 for a charity of their choice, while the team who came in third won a £10 voucher each, as well as £500 for their school. All other entrants also received a £10 voucher for their time, effort, engagement and creativity.
Entries were judged on:
1. Following the Brief – Does the game promote saving energy?
2. Originality – Is the game unique?
3. Experience – Does the game make us want to play it?
The standard was incredibly high, with over 90 sign-ups. Check out some of the games here:
Llongyfarchiadau to all involved! Keep your eyes peeled for future competitions.
