Last year, the SustainaBUILDity competition brought together schools to showcase their creative prowess, problem-solving abilities and teamwork in the enchanting world of Minecraft Education. After numerous submissions, the top eight schools were selected to compete at W5 LIFE for a chance to win the coveted Minecraft Education Trophy and a day of Minecraft outreach for their school.
The competitors gave the judges a tough job on the day of the final, with little between the top three live final builds.
Alanna Cassidy, a judge from last year's competition, said: "The level of innovation and creativity displayed by the students was nothing short of awe-inspiring.
"The winning team, Chish and Fips from RBAI demonstrated their mastery of Minecraft Education's building tools and effectively communicated their reasoning behind their build. There were so many impressive builds, but their clear communication and understanding of the task brought them the win."
Conor McKay, W5 LIFE centre lead, added: “It was such a fantastic experience at last year's final. It was very rewarding to see such a mix of different young people from a variety of backgrounds getting involved. We had students from SEN classes, Ukrainian students, and those in Primary 6 to 3rd year all competing in the same space. I can't wait to see what this year holds.”
Dream Space Belfast is calling for the teachers of all budding builders to register their interest in this year's competition. This challenge is open to those in primary 6 to 3rd year of post-primary.
