Coding Competition 2020
The purpose of the Competition is to engage children from all over the country and to inspire young people to solve everyday problems in their schools and communities through the programming of physical devices. The Competition will use the BBC's micro:bit device to enable children to design a project in response to the Sustainable Development Goals and to explore solutions to the problems they face in their daily lives.
The 2020 Programming Competition is open to all students in grades 5 to 8 from schools that meet the following criteria:
- Participated in critical thinking and problem-solving training within the British Council's 21st Century Schools Project from September to December 2019
- They have implemented a program in schools which includes the realization of classes with the use of methods of critical thinking and problem solving and have implemented a cross-curricular school project
- Schools whose teachers have completed an online course on the use of micro: bit devices
This competition will have two rounds (online and live) when the winners of the country-level coding competition will be selected, who will then have the opportunity to participate in the Regional Coding Competition. The coding contest is organized in partnership with the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology of the Republic of Serbia.
