The Young Coders Competition 2022
The Young Coders competition is back again for 2022 and you can take part!
Now in its 5th year, the Young Coders Competition is a competition for primary and secondary schools (years 4—8) aimed at helping teachers to become more confident with teaching coding skills.
Any teacher, tutor or parent 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 some experience using Scratch.
This year’s theme is ‘My World, Our Planet’. The challenge is to create a reactive game that encourages children to take care of natural resources and improve the environment. The opportunities are endless and you are in charge of creativity. Think about the content of your game and make it engaging, fun, interactive and reactive.
To make entering even better, the Young Coders Competition has now been CREST Awards accredited too!
