Ironbridge Minecraft Competition
TA are excited to announce our latest competition for schools! 
In partnership with Microsoft and Telford & Wrekin Council, this Spring, we are running a competition for schools celebrating the history and importance of Ironbridge, Shropshire. 

To demonstrate the possibilities of learning with Minecraft Education Edition (M:EE), TA has worked with Microsoft and T&W Council IT Services (T&W) to design a competition that will see students exploring the historical significance of Ironbridge, before building their own bridge that reflects modern-day Telford. 

The competition is free and open to any school accessing support from T&W and is suitable for students aged 8 – 14 (Years 4-8).  

Schools can enter multiple entries using the submission form provided between 1st March – 27th May 2022. 

Full terms and conditions are available to download below.
