Kate Farrell and Tom Hendry's presentation for the Scottish Learning Festival on teaching ICT and Computing Science outcomes through interdisciplinary projects.

Learn about the innovative and creative interdisciplinary projects in Castlebrae that ensure S1 and S2 pupils have engaging and challenging ICT and Computing Science experiences.

The pupils have created maps and text adventure games, published children's stories, created superheroes and made graphic novels about them and designed 3D paper craft monsters. They have also made German quiz games in Scratch, played board games to learn probability, produced animations and composed soundtracks.
