Codeavour 2019 | Pictoblox Programming Contest for Kids
2 min read

Codeavour is an international online programming contest for kids to unlock their potential and come up with innovative ways to achieve a goal among the 17 global sustainable development goals set by the United Nations General Assembly for 2030 by creating a project in PictoBlox – a graphical programming software based on Scratch.

The aim of the contest is to encourage kids to develop an interest in STEM, especially programming, and develop critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, and communication – the four C’s of the 21st century skills – along with becoming sensitive towards the well being of the world.

Why participate?

Looking at the way the world is progressing towards a technology-driven future, knowing how to code is an extremely useful skill to have. At the same time, one must be equally aware of and sensitive towards what’s happening in the world and do their bit, be it big or small, for making it a better place to live in for us and for the generations to come.

Participating in this contest would:

  • Help kids learn to program the fun way with PictoBlox by offering a first-hand experience
  • Help develop cognitive abilities and learn a methodical problem-solving process
  • Sensitize kids towards the world problems and encourage them to solve them
