COBIS & Discovery Education Coding Challenge 2020

During our 2020 Coding Challenge, students used Discovery Education Coding to gain a firm understanding of coding concepts like algorithms, sequences and variables – while practising computational thinking through problem-solving and the breaking down of tasks into logical steps. Students used their new skills to create an app based on one of the two themes, 'Habitats' or 'Journeys'. The judges were overwhelmed by the quality of submissions. Thank you to everyone who took part and congratulations to the winning students!
