Students and teachers from local schools will gather at a central event at the Birmingham Science Park, Aston. The day will be introduced and hosted by developer Sean Oxyspring. Students will then spend the morning creating games using Scratch under Sean’s guidance alongside other game industry veterans.
The whole event will be live streamed from scratchyournose.com and schools and coding clubs around the country are invited to join in remotely.
Donations will be gathered by asking people to donate to play the games created by the students.
Andrew Goff, COO at Gazoob explains, “There is a growing realization that teaching children how to code will give them a skill for life. Our aim with the Scratch Your Nose event is to have fun with coding and show children how accessible coding is, whilst raising vital funds for Comic Relief on Red Nose Day.”
