Come on down to the Great Arizona Code Challenge! Create video games, apps and websites, meet new people, compete for prizes, learn about how coding can help you get jobs, start businesses, and make your "dent in the universe."
This event is open to kids from all over Arizona. It will be tons of fun, whether you have been coding for years or you're just getting started. Here's the video from our first year.
Grades 9-12: Arrive on Friday morning, form teams, and code all day and all night. You will make apps to support local nonprofits, learning to use your coding powers for good.
Grades 3-8: Arrive Saturday morning and spend the day making games and apps.
The best way to learn to code is by coding! So come join the fun, get some help from volunteer coding pros, and learn with friends. Also, food. Lots of good food. And t-shirts.
After the coding is over, all the kids will have a chance to present their project to their peers in a "show and tell" session. Expert judges will choose winning teams and award awesome prizes at the closing ceremony, open to families and the general public on Saturday evening (family members need to reserve seats for the closing reception, but the coders are covered under their registration).
If you're undecided and need some convincing, or if you have any questions, please contact us and we'll do our best to get you excited about coding and about this awesome event.
