Technocamps Game Of Codes 2019 Coding Competition - Smart CitiesPublished on 13 December 2018
Game of Codes is back as Technocamps pan-Wales National Programming Competition. The competition will enable interested pupils to develop their problem solving, communication and teamwork skills as well as improving their knowledge of computer programming in a fun and inventive way.
The challenge is to create a piece of software using Smart Cities as the theme.
Your software must have an original design which could be in the form of a game, website, app, quiz or animation. Any coding language can be used to create the software e.g. Scratch, Python, Greenfoot, Visual Basic, App Inventor or HTML etc. and you can also make use of the Raspberry Pis, BBC Micro:bits or Arduino kits that you may have in your school.
