Last year some of our schools submitted animations created by students, during projects designed in lessons or through enrichment activities, to enter this competition from the University’s School of Computer Science.

The competition is open to all 7-19 students who will  design and create a 1-minute animated film on their computer.  With an opportunity to win some great prizes, too 🙂

This year we’ll be encouraging more teachers in Hull to submit entries which can be created through a wide range of software.  This could include Scratch, Adobe Flash, Alice, Autodesk 3D Studio Max, Autodesk Maya, Blender, KoolMoves, Lightwave, Serif DrawPlus or SWiSH Max4.
