Young Coders Competition 2020
The Young Coders Competition for primary schools is back again for 2020!
Aimed at helping teachers to become more confident with teaching coding skills, any teacher can run the competition whether they are familiar with coding or completely new to it. All the session planning is done for you so you can learn alongside your pupils.
The resources include 12 weeks of lesson planning for absolute beginners (children and teachers!) or a shorter 6 week version for those who already have a little experience with using Scratch. The resources can be used for computing lessons or to run an after school club.
It is open for children in years 4, 5 and 6 working in teams of 3 – 6 children. The aim is to create a short computer game using Scratch to “Teach your Pals about the Past”
There will be awards for the children creating the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place projects and additional cash prizes this year for the school or club to take away as well. £500 for 1st place, £200 for 2nd place and £100 for 3rd place.
