Online Coding Workshop for Grade 5/6s
July 27 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm
|MAV, in collaboration with Digital Learning and Teaching Victoria (DLTV), is excited to be running two activities to be delivered across the state between Sept 2020 and Dec 2022 as part of The Victorian Challenge and Enrichment Series.|
In stage 1 students will receive a virtual kit with a series of fun and engaging coding tasks. Students will participate in these tasks via a user-friendly online platform – accessible from school or home. The challenges will require that students apply coding and algorithmic thinking in order to solve interesting problems. (Coding kits have been launched and are available to access until end of 2020.)
Stage 2 allows student to compete with others in a state-wide coding competition (in 2020 this will be virtual). In this competition, students will be competing in groups in an open-ended challenge, utilising coding in an engaging real-world application. They will present their solutions to be judged and will be eligible to win some cool prizes. (Entry to stage 2 is not dependent upon completing stage 1)
