Kids will flock to coding thanks to Shaun the Sheep

CBaldwin Profile: CBaldwin


The creative brain behind Wallace and Gromit has joined up with the Nominet Trust to encourage kids to get coding.

The studios character Shaun the Sheep – who first appeared in the Wallace and Gromit episode, A Close Shave, and later starred in his own TV spin off -is the inspiration behind the campaign.

Shaun will launch his own Game Academy competition where children can build sheep-based games using the coding platform Scratch.

The competition will run until September, to co-inside with the UK including basic programming as part of the ICT curriculum.
