CultureTECH Big Video Challenge

CultureTECH holds a Big Video Challenge for all schools across Northern Ireland.  This year the topic was on Code Breaking.

Year 9 entered three teams the Code Breakers, the Detentioners and Coding Everyday.

The Codebreakers consisted of Esme Ballard, Isabel Bittles, Emily Guest, Shannon Johnson, Rachel Kerr, Leah Maghie, Eisha Miah, Olivia Mitchell, Rebecca Sayer and Lucie Young. They based their entry around the song “The Other Side” by Jason Derulo to explain how codes are created and deciphered.

The Detentioners consisted of Emma Burns, Ewan Gillan, Nicole Kechit, Hannah McQuaide and Mariam Olokodana. They based their entry around the scenario of pupils getting detentions, trying to break a teacher’s code so that they could get out of their detention.[vsw id=”5vwzr9tX2wE” source=”youtube” width=”600″ height=”344″ autoplay=”no”]
