The Premier's Coding Challenge is an annual statewide initiative for all Queensland students in Year 3 to Year 10. The Premier's Coding Challenge aims to encourage an interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) in Queensland students.
We understand that the Internet is very helpful and can be a lot of fun; however, interacting online has a number of risks and it can be difficult to be sure of someone's real identity or intentions. Improving cybersecurity skills is important in today's world and who better to help raise awareness amongst Queenslanders than our budding developers and designers, aspiring engineers and young innovators.
The challenge in 2020 is to code an interactive and innovative digital solution to raise awareness of cybersecurity. Entrants can develop an app, game, animation or website, and they must submit a short video showcase with their entry.
Students can enter as individuals or as a pair, in one of 8 categories. See examples from
previous winners (ZIP, 67.8MB). Winners receive
prizes (PDF, 65KB) of coding and robotic kits (total prize pool $10,000).
As seen live on 10Peach and on-demand via the department’s YouTube channel, coding@homeTV guides students through a design process to create an entry for the 2020 Premier’s Coding Challenge.
