Shaun The Sheep’s Game Academy

EDGE - - KNOWLEDGE THIS MONTH -

www.bit.ly/1hQ5JPe Aard­man, the UK stu­dio be­hind Wal­lace and Gromit, has teamed up with so­cial tech in­vestor Nominet Trust to launch a com­pe­ti­tion that aims to get kids pro­gram­ming. Shaun The Sheep’s Game Academy asks en­trants to cre­ate a game in Scratch that stars Aard­man char­ac­ters. The stu­dio has pro­vided a suite of char­ac­ter art, back­grounds and ef­fects to use, and hope­fuls can sub­mit some­thing to­tally orig­i­nal or remix one of the stu­dio’s own Game Academy projects. The win­ner will get to visit Aard­man’s game team, and will also win a tour of the an­i­ma­tion stu­dios, a mod­el­mak­ing ses­sion and the chance to watch their favourite film in Aard­man’s pri­vate cin­ema. The com­pe­ti­tion is split into un­der-13 and 13-and-over cat­e­gories and the dead­line for sub­mis­sions is Septem­ber 1.
