Summer fete games

About this unit

Software:    Scratch, Microsoft Excel®

Outcome:  An interactive game of skill or chance and a spreadsheet analysing or modelling the performance of the game over time

Have you wondered how easily the children in your class might turn their talents in ICT to making money? This unit provides a chance to find out. Using the Scratch programming language, children work with a partner (or in teams) to create simple games of chance or skill, which they can then use in a fundraising event like a school fete, either for a charity, the school, or perhaps even themselves. An understanding of probability or statistics should allow them to work out their chances of success.
