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.

The Premier’s Coding Challenge offers great prizes and an excellent opportunity for students to create some interactive and innovative coding to raise awareness of cyber safety and help Queenslanders by providing tips to improve their cyber safety.

Everyone who uses the internet creates a trail of data, this includes websites visited, emails sent and even posts that are liked. This trail of data is called a 'digital footprint'. Data used to identify a user, such as date of birth, search activities and usernames and passwords, form a 'digital identity' that is used to authenticate a user's identity. This data needs to be kept private to increase security and prevent identity theft.

How will you help Queenslanders to use technology appropriately and responsibly to protect their digital footprint and digital identity?

Develop an app, game, animation, website or robotic prototype. Winners receive prizes of coding and robotic kits (total prize pool $10,000). Enter as an individual or as a pair.

If you have any questions email coding.competition@qed.qld.gov.au.
