Scratch is a fun and interesting way to introduce software development to students. The National Scratch Competition is brought to you by the Irish Computer Society and is free to enter. The competition is open to ages 5-18 years. Scratch teaches computational thinking and problem-solving using a powerful yet simple-to-use building block approach to app creation. Scratch helps young people learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively – essential skills for life in the 21st century.
