Schools Coding Competition - Tuesday 12th March 2024
Calling all Primary and Preparatory Schools in the Cambridgeshire area! Do you have enthusiastic Year 5s and 6s that would be up for a coding challenge?
The Rotary Club of Cambridge and The Centre for Computing History are hosting a micro:bit coding competition on Tuesday, 12th March 2024 at The Centre for Computing History.
The competition, which is for children in the upper Key Stage 2 age group, is open to 15 teams of up to 4 students per team from Cambridgeshire schools.
The competition will involve using a micro:bit to control a buggy with two challenges at progressive difficulty levels. The buggy kit will be pre-assembled and comes with built-in sensors for line and obstacle sensing and a header to slot in the micro:bit. The participants will use the block coding interface of the micro:bit to code the buggy to investigate these features, ending the challenges by navigating their buggies through a maze!
The day runs from 9.30am to 2.30pm. Children should bring their own snacks and lunches and be accompanied by at least one adult.
Teachers should register their interest in entering a team by emailing our Learning Team: email@example.com.
The Rotary Club of Cambridge is an association of business and professional men and women committed to using their time and experience in service to the community - locally and internationally - and in particular supporting the development of young people through offering a range of competitions and challenges to children of school age.
