S3 Admin were introduced to Spreadsheets recently by creating Christmas Pictures using the fill tool as well as inserting shapes and icons to make them more interesting.
Haven’t they done a great job?
The Business Education and Computing Science Faculty were very excited to find out that Finlay in S3 had won a prize in the DressCode Halloween coding competition. Finlay is pictured below with his prize. The only criteria for the Scratch coding competition was that there had to be a haunted house. Finlay said “My entry was a haunted house and it included a monster which was bitten by a bat and turned into a vampire – I’m really delighted with my prize and really enjoyed coding my competition entry”. Well done Finlay, we all hope you enjoy your prize which is a Divoom Pixoo Pixel Art digital photo frame.
