The BICT department ran Williamwood’s first ever Game Jam in the library last week. The Game Jam involves S3 and S5 Computing Science pupils getting together to make a game in a day working in teams. They make the game, graphics, sounds, storylines etc. The Game Jam is a global event and I think we are the first high school ever to get involved.
