A computer games competition has been launched for primary school pupils across the north and north-east.
Education Scotland has launched the contest to encourage P6 and P7 students to develop skills in digital literacy, creativity and collaboration.
The competition to design a game has been backed by all regions in the Northern Alliance – including Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire, Argyll and Bute, the Western Isles, Highland, Moray, Orkney and Shetland.
Two teams from each area will be selected to compete in a grand final with hopes it can become an annual event.
Helen Budge, lead officer for the Northern Alliance, said: “This is an opportunity to capture the imaginations of young people right across the area.
“Science and technology is for everyone regardless of your gender and we’re keen to push boundaries as well as enabling pupils to benefit from the collaborative approach the Northern Alliance is delivering for teachers across the area.”
