Build it Scotland is inviting children aged 7-14 to help build Scotland’s top landmarks in a virtual world. Whether it’s your own local museum or one of the nation’s favourite castles, we want you to help create a digital map of Scotland.

We are marking Scotland’s Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design by encouraging budding architects to find out more about the nation’s popular landmark buildings including Stirling Castle, the Kelpies, Glasgow’s Armadillo and the Forth Bridges.

  
The idea is to build the landmark using 3D design software such as Minecraft, Tinkercad or SketchUp using PCs, laptops or Raspberry Pi’s.

We have created a range of resources to guide you through which software you are going to use to create your landmark with step by step instructions and accompanying video tutorials. Once you are up and running, let us know who you are and what you’re building by emailing builditscotland@bbc.co.uk. And when your landmark is complete send it to us at the same address.Details on how to save and send can be found in each of the ‘how to’ guides.

The deadline for
submissions is Friday 14th October 2016.

We will create a digital map of Scotland featuring a selection of your buildings from across the country to showcase some of your fantastic creations this summer.
