Computing Science Penny Arcade

Our S2 (new S3) pupils have been working hard to use their programming skills to develop their own arcade games as part of an enterprise project in class this term.

In teams they have taken on roles similar to those in professional games studios, including, project manager, programmer, tester, design artist and advertising executive with the aim of “selling” their game to pupils in school.

As part of the process Mr Aitken has set up a competition where we will invite year groups in to play in our “arcade” in room D.0.24 at break and lunchtimes and charge 10p entry. The team with the most plays after a week will win and get to keep the money raised.

Our new S1 pupils are welcome to come along at break and lunch to try out our amazing games on Tuesday and Wednesday next week. 10p entry.

The schedule for other year groups is:

New S2 and S3: Thursday lunchtime

Seniors: Friday break
