Bradford Gaming Festival

Life-size ‘Operation’ – with a twist!

Four keen Silsden computing students enjoyed an afternoon at the Bradford Gaming Festival this week, hosted by Curriculum Innovation.

They had the opportunity to play clever – computerised – versions of Operation, Space Invaders and Pong, as well as to play a bit of music using some clever programming.

Best of all, entries from 8 Silsden students featured in the competitions at the festival – Lucy in Year 6 created a brilliant game that you can play here, whilst 7 other students were finalists in the art competition to design a new video game character.

A massive congratulations to Ruby, who won the competition for her character Catra, and Rudie for being runner-up with Mino the Ice Fox. Both girls received well-deserved prizes in assembly today.
