Kodu Kup is a coding competition open to UK school children aged between 7 and 14 years old. Kodu Kup Scotland is a sister competition to the UK Kodu Kup designed to work with the larger competition, taking Scotland’s different term times into account. The competition has been organised and run by David Renton, a Microsoft Innovative Educator Expert. The competition is open to anyone from a Scottish school aged between seven and fourteen. Children must be entered as a team of three, forming a mini “game studio”.
According to the entry form:
There is no specific theme or audience for the game but it must have a clear storyline and well thought out characters with a detailed playing environment. Schools may wish to link this to current literacy projects already taking place.
The top ten teams will be invited to the College Development Network in Stirling on June 16th 2014 and given the opportunity to present their games to a panel of experts from education and the games industry. Entries are now open. Schools have until Friday 30th of May to enter.
