Business in the Community launches coding competition with Allstate NI
To encourage the development of coding skills we have launched a Time to Code coding competition in partnership with Allstate NI.
A lot of children and young people are missing the coding activities they participate in at school or with local Code Clubs or CoderDojos. To keep the fun going, and to encourage the continuation and development of coding skills we have launched a Time to Code coding competition in partnership with Allstate NI. The lucky winners in each category will receive a laptop, with runners up receiving a Raspberry Pi Zero with starter kits.
Time to Code is a volunteering initiative for children at Key Stage 2, helping to teach them how to code, build their confidence and develop their social skills.
All information on the competition can be found below, or please download and share the flyer by clicking here.
