Lakeland Branch Holiday Coding Challenge

21 Dec 2021
Register by December 20, 2021

The Holiday Coding Challenge is for students aged 8-12 and kicks-off with an interactive Zoom tutorial (you will receive the meeting link by email closer to the event). Starting from the basics, participants will be led through the step-by-step mechanics of Scratch block coding and complete several activities to apply their knowledge and practice using the program. 
 
The presenters will then do a quick demonstration of programming a complete product using Scratch (a game, a story, or an animation) and participants will be given a challenge to build their own game. Participants will have one week to create, test and submit their game.
 
Game scoring criteria and submission details will be explained at the event and provided in an email following the event. Our Volunteers, made up of local engineers, will score the game submissions based on many categories and prizes will be awarded in early January. 
 
Watch your email for event links and more information. We can't wait!
