COBIS & Discovery Education Coding Challenge 2020
8 January - 26 February 2020
We’re inviting all COBIS schools, with children aged 5-12, to compete with their peers around the world to create their own app!
Coding is fast becoming a core competency for many careers, but it also provides children with skills such as reasoning, creativity and resilience.
With Discovery Education Coding, children will 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.
Want your students to take part? Advanced registrations are now open!
Competition starts on 8th January 2020 and closes on 26th February 2020 at 18:30 GMT. Children must be between 5-12 years old to enter and attend a COBIS member or applicant school. Winners are chosen by a judging panel, with six Amazon Vouchers to be awarded (total value $1,000). Entries must be submitted by their registered class or group teacher over the age of 18.
