MAKE IT Happy Competition Winners - Longton Primary School

Make IT Happy challenges 9-11 year olds to demonstrate how technology can be used creatively to make people happy. The theme of this year’s competition was ‘Make IT Healthy’. It called for school children to investigate potential uses of technology to support a healthy and active lifestyle, building on the enthusiasm surrounding the London 2012 Olympics.

Twelve schools travelled to London to visit the Houses of Parliament and receive their prizes. The Lord Speaker, Lady d’Souza, presented cheques for £1200 to the regional winners, and Paralympic athlete Lady (Tanni) Grey-Thompson presented additional prizes to the overall winners.

First prize, a cheque for £4000, was awarded to pupils at Longton Primary School, Preston, who learnt to use Scratch to programme short animations on the theme of healthy living. The animations used characters designed to have wide appeal, and were shown in school assembly before being loaded onto the school’s website so that parents and others could benefit from them./uploads/8/files/MakeITHappy2012_photo2_494x234.png
