International academic competition
Welcome to the 1st edition of the CodedArena Challenge! A competition featuring a series of Academic Challenges organized by CodedArena, to encourage learning programming among young students, always using real code and preparing them for the working world. We care about their future!
In addition, completing the challenges is linked to programming and learning. If your students do not know how to program in Python, no problem. They will be able to complete missions in CodedArena’s Adventure Mode to learn programming and successfully solve the academic challenges.
Synergy between subjects
Each Academic Challenge is related to a different area of curricular learning, and will help the students work as a team and make progress in those subjects. They will also have the chance to code in Python in a more dynamic and enjoyable way, thanks to the CodedArena videogame.
The teams must be ready to claim victory by completing the first phase: The Academic Challenges. They will have to successfully solve as many of the 7 challenges as they can. A new challenge will appear every 2 weeks in the CodedArena blog. The first one will be revealed on Monday the 15th of February, and all challenges must be solved before Friday the 28th of May.
Attention! In order for the teams to have enough time to solve all the challenges, we suggest to the schools that they begin before the 1st of May.
The second phase begins! And, during it, teams must reach the best possible position in the Challenge Tournament. This is a tournament that will be held in CodedArena’s Multiplayer Mode. During this part of the competition, the participants will program their character’s code and they will be facing their rivals, climbing positions in the ranking with each victory
15 FEB - 28 MAY
CodedArena Challenge’s first edition officially begins on Monday the 15th of February, when the first Academic Challenge will be revealed.
