SCRATCH 

CHALLENGE 2020

ABOUT THE COMPETITION

For the past 6 years Brilliant Labs, and our community partners have been celebrating the creativity and innovative imagination of youth throughout our region through the annual Scratch Competition.

 

Scratch is a block-based visual programming language and online community. It was developed by the MIT Media Lab, has been translated into 70+ languages, and where it can be used to help introduce youth to coding it can be used to create some very amazing and complex projects.   

Students will have an opportunity to win prizes including prizes for Best Overall, Best Technical, and Best Artistic Design and digital badges for participating!
