Tinderbox Collective: Schoolhouse of the month (November)
We are lucky to work with some of the most creative and ingenious teachers you can find. Here, you'll discover the amazing work that our Schoolhouse do. Each month we'll be featuring one of our Schoolhouses, so you can learn more about this amazing community of schools and colleges.
First up, we have Tinderbox Collective.
Tinderbox Collective is a community of young people, musicians, artists and youth workers, based in Scotland. Tinderbox Collective joined Digital Schoolhouse in 2021, and have proudly become our first Scottish Schoolhouse!

How long have you been a Digital Schoolhouse?
This is our first year so just a few short months!

Our young people have been telling us they're enjoying Animal Crossing, Hollow Knight and Roblox! We've also had a bit of discussion going on how good the Rayman, Undertale & Mario music is.
Personally myself, I'm looking forward to playing Moonglow Bay...

Bringing more game design & coding opportunities to our young people, and further developing our own workshops.
