Aardman Animations

First Coding would like to share some great news with you all!

We have a year 8 pupil who is fanatical about animation and coding. This summer he worked on a complicated interactive animation built in Scratch and designed a web page around it to really show it off. We then sent it through to Aardman and last week one of their creative directors wrote the loveliest reply…

I think he has done brilliantly! To do ALL that, and at the age of 12, is fantastic! He has a long and exciting career ahead of him, he can go in any direction he chooses, and to be so dedicated at such a young age is wonderful to see. Well done, I look forward to what he creates next!

This is a great example of how children can unlock their potential through creative coding.
