During EU Code Week, 9 - 24 October 2021, we invite you to do one or more of the EU Code Week challenges.
EU Code Week Challenges are activities that you can do on your own, in the classroom, with colleagues or friends. You would like to participate in Code Week but do not really have an idea of what to organize? Look no further! We have designed along with Code Week partners a selection of easy to make challenges, that include concrete examples of how to use it in a classroom or group. There are also guidelines on how to complete the challenges, but you can adapt them so that they suit the needs, interests and age of your participants. You can use whatever tools and technologies you like, but we recommend open-source resources.
Choose one or several challenges, adapt it to your group or your classroom, and share the results on Instagram to encourage even more colleagues and friends to engage in the Code Week fun!
Click on the challenge to find out more about it:
- Select a challenge you would like to complete.
- Team up your participants in pairs or groups. Teamwork and collaboration are key for the successful completion of a challenge whether you organise your activity in-person or online as a national or international collaborative activity.
After you have completed the challenge, share it on Instagram.
Winners will be selected every day during Code Week between 9 – 24 October and announced on our Instagram channel, so don't forget to check your notifications regularly.
