Coding Challenge

Back by popular demand, we have partnered with Discovery Education to provide students at British International schools with the opportunity to compete with their peers around the world to create their own app. 

Registration has now closed. 

This competition is open to all COBIS schools, including Applicant schools. A limited number of spaces are available for MoD schools and BSME, FOBISIA, LAHC, NABSS and AoBSO member schools.

Using Discovery Education Coding, students aged 5-12 will be guided through a sequence of activities to familiarise themselves with the platform and develop their coding skills, before unleashing their creativity to design their own app!

This year the theme of the competition is A difficult journey.  Students should create an app that simulates a journey to find an important object. Students can make their journey difficult or dangerous, with obstacles to overcome along the way. The adventure is in their hands.

Students can work individually, or in groups of up to four. 

This competition is free to enter.

The deadline for competition entries is Wednesday 27 April 2022.
