Community Gallery Coding Challenges

As Part of Stirling Science Festival, at Thistle Stirling, Mon-Fri 9-5:30 | Sat 9-6pm | Sun 10-5pm

Take on our coding challenge! Create a text based adventure game using any piece of software. In a classic interactive fiction book your story would change depending on what option you picked at various points …there was always more than one ending to the story or you sometimes never made it to the end of a story! We would like you to create a similar story using software. Include some amazing science facts in your story. Games will be accessible throughout the Thistles via a QR code.


Scratch, Python, Makecode, Javascript can be used to make a text based adventure game. The premise of the game could be you are trying to escape a house, village or world, meeting new characters and making the right decisions.

An interactive Google Slide using hyperlinks could be used to tell your story. The word “hyperlinks” is linked to a short YouTube video that demonstrates how hyperlinks work in Google Slides.


NOTE: The submitted game must be an active link. If you are submitting a link to a Scratch game, the account must be verified through the initial email received on signup.”
