Technocamps Game Of Codes 2019 Coding Competition - Smart Cities

Published 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.

When Ben Dodd decided to join some friends at a lunchtime Robotics Club while in Secondary School, little did he know that it would be the start of his journey into a career in Computer Science.

Robert is a Cardiff University graduate whose career in computer science was inspired by a week-long Technocamps workshop he undertook while in school.

We have opened up the portal we developed for the Summer programme and the resources we developed as a team are available for you to use and share.
