Stand up to cyberbullies. Create some wicked coding to help your friends stand up to cyberbullies. It could be a game, animation, an app or something else.
Read your challenge below for more details.
How to enter
Students from state, independent and Catholic schools in Queensland can enter in one of four categories:
- Years 3 and 4
- Years 5 and 6
- Years 7 and 8
- Years 9 and 10.
Students can enter as individuals or in teams of up to four people.
They need to create a digital solution that meets the theme of ‘stand up to cyberbullies’ using Anti-Bully Girl - one of the Cyber Heroes.
Examples of entries could be an animation, game or an interactive map. It’s only limited by students’ imagination.
To enter, students upload their code or a prototype of what they developed, and a presentation that highlights how their entry can be implemented, to the coding competition submission page by 5pm Tuesday 19 June 2018.
More information and the terms and conditions are available from the entry submission page.
Entries will be assessed against a set of selection criteria.
Download the poster (PDF, 1.6MB) to promote the competition in your school.
Students who enter will be in the running to win some great prizes. Such as robotic and Arduino kits, humanoid robots, Raspberry PI powered computers and loads more. So get coding to be in with a chance.
Winners will be announced in Brisbane on Tuesday 21 August 2018 at the i-Educate 2018 conference.
Two individual finalists and one team entry from each category will attend the awards ceremony (expenses paid).
Check out the winning entries from last year.
There are a number of curriculum and cybersafety resources to guide teachers and support students with their entries including the Queensland Government cybersafety information website and cybersafety teaching resources from the Office of the eSafety Commission.
For Department of Education staff there is also the Queensland Coding Academy teacher site, STEM discussion list and coding discussion list.
