Jan 17 This is not a game!
Mark Dunne, Simon Poole and Jonathan Gore were awarded first prize last week for their entry into “This is not a Game”.
The competition was run by Coderdojo and Griffith College and sponsored by The BT Young Scientist Competition and the American Embassy.
The three students created a game called “Robo Shark 4000” where the player was a shark and his mission was to sink ships.
Embedded in the game were also various education facts relating to our sea's and and the habitat within.
120 groups entered the competition with four groups selected as finalists. each finalist then had to present their game to the judges before they were announced as winners.
