Belfast schoolgirl scoops top prize in technology competition
10th June – The UK, Belfast Live
A Belfast schoolgirl has won the top prize in the first health-focused Code for Better CoderDojo competition, organised by CoderDojo Belfast and Belfast-based tech company TotalMobile.
Fourteen year-old Neve O’Neill was awarded a tablet computer for her entry ‘Sweet Invaders’, a game she designed using GameMaker, where players must defend the earth from junk food as they learn about nutrition.
Judges of the competition, open to children under 16 who attend CoderDojo Belfast, a youth coding club founded and run by Belfast Metropolitan College at its Titanic Quarter Campus, described her entry as “well written, factual and educational”.
