The upcoming summer vacation is an opportunity for elementary and middle school students to experience various activities, but seeing the spread of the epidemic, have parents still not helped their children choose summer camp activities? Now there is an international online programming competition for elementary and middle school students. It has attracted many elementary and middle school students from north to south and even Huadong to sign up. Don’t miss it!
“2021 International Youth Programming Competition” is an online programming competition organized for children aged 8-16. The first competition was launched by AI4kids, a startup company of science and technology education, Nanyi Publishing Group, and the Chinese Association of Multiple Intelligences Education. CodeCombat, a game-based programming education platform with 20 million users worldwide, serves as a learning and competition website for contestants. They can participate without registration fees, allowing elementary and middle school students to start from “zero foundation” and gradually learn the Python programming language through problem-solving practice. Compete through a well-designed hero program battle system.
In the past, this competition mechanism will be handled in Hong Kong, Singapore, the United States and other regions every year, attracting a large number of students to participate. This year, the organizer will introduce Taiwan to Taiwan for the first time. Since July, it will be divided into three stages: preliminary, semi-finals and finals, and the finals. The winners will represent Taiwan in the US CodeQuest global competition!
▲The 2021 International Youth Programming Competition will be held in Taoyuan Xiang’an National School in April to make the primary six students enthusiastic and shout for fun!
Participate while learning to get in line with 108 syllabus programming ability
At present, most of the primary and secondary schools use the Scratch building block programming language to cultivate children’s computational thinking. The organizer hopes that through this competition, primary and secondary school students will be further exposed to the real Python programming grammar, so as to integrate with the programming in the 108 syllabus country and high school technology fields. ability. And will it be difficult for children in elementary and middle schools? Not at all, because the competition platform CodeCombat is designed with a gamified interface, hero and gem story scenes to attract elementary and middle school students to learn the basic grammar of the program step by step, from data types, variables, parameters, and strings. Program logic concepts such as loops, conditional expressions, and letter indications can be refined through a large number of levels practice. In Singapore, Hong Kong and other countries, the CodeCombat platform has also been used to hold many youth program competitions.
How to prepare children for competition
Following the uniform education platform, the organizer has also prepared programming instructional videos for the contestants. As long as there is an Internet computer at home, children can participate in the competition.
