Recently at this year’s BETT show, the Kodu Kup was officially launched in the UK.  It has been running in the US for a number of years, but this is the first time UK students will get the opportunity to compete against one another.  Any child from the age of 7 to 14 can enter as individuals or in teams of up to 3 people.

Students have to design a game and front cover for one of three potential themes; retro arcade games, water awareness or Mars exploration.  The deadline is May 31st 2013 and the 10 shortlisted entries will be invited to Microsoft HQ to present their games and take part in workshops.  Three teams will be awarded XBox consoles for their efforts with the best overall team claiming the Kodu Cup.

There are resources available to help teachers, produced by the excellent Geeky Nicky from Interactive Classroom.
