It is our great pleasure to sponsor the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency’s Code Challenge for 2017.

 

 

 

 

 

 

We at SIS believe in re-investing into our community, and there is no better way than by encouraging our children to embrace digital technologies to become the software engineers and cyber security professionals of the future.

Our sponsored code challenge is aimed at 7 to 11 year olds and is presented in association with Code Club and the STEM Ambassador hub Wales, Incredible Oceans, Brake, The four Police Forces in Wales and School Beat, Road Safety Wales, The Fire and rescue Service and the British Army.

The challenge will enable interested pupils to develop their problem solving, communication and teamwork skills as well as improving their knowledge of computer programming in a fun and innovative way.

The challenge is to build a game using SCRATCH (a fun coding language which is available to download free of charge from this site www.scratch.mit.edu

The event will be hosted by BBC Wales’ very own Lucy Owen.  We look forward to meeting the students and wish all involved the very best wishes for a successful competition.
