The Downley School

“Learning, Growing and Succeeding Together”

Google Competition & Trip 2017

We held a competition and invited the children to make interactive stories, and games with code and animation. We were particulalrly looking for creativity, coding and decomposition. The 8 winners would visit the Google HQ in London and get a tour of the building. There were more than 40 entries and the standard was extremely high as can be seen below.

Below is the winners' work plus runners up. Click here for a photo gallery of the trip.


Hall Of Fame by Theo

When the trip was first mooted and before we had announced the competition Theo's work so impressed us that he immediately was invited to go on the trip. His work acted as a real catalyst and standard for others to aim for!
