RecycleRight Scratch coding games project 2019

Richmond Tweed Regional Library (RTRL) and four of our member councils are happy to present the best projects from our 2019 RecycleRight Coding program. 
As our communities move towards new recycling changes, the RecyleRight coding program challenged local coders to create games and animations that can help teach our communities how to recycle. This fun program allowed participants to explore our new recycling rules, and create dynamic ways to show others how to RecycleRight. Over one hundred coders participated across RTRL, with the majority aged between seven to twelve years.
