Raising children’s awareness of Code and Ecological Matters thanks to #SuperCodeurs!
Publication date: November 8, 2016
Join in the 3rd edition of #SuperCodeurs!
This year again, Orange, in partnership with Simplon.co, has launched its #SuperCodeurs programme and the “Code for COP22″ challenge!
This programme teaches children the basics and logic of code. The principle: learn through creativity on the Scratch platform, by imagining little games, stories and quizzes.
Save the planet with Code for COP22!
On the occasion of COP 22, the global Conference on Climate Change which will take place in November in Marrakech, the theme this year will be the protection of the environment with the Code for COP challenge! All children, girls and boys, aged from 6 to 16 years, are invited to create games and animations to raise awareness, amongst their entourage, of the challenges and risks of climate change. The children will be able to at the same time learn about the principles of code and become involved in climate questions, through active and creative reasoning.
The 7 best projects from the challenge will be rewarded during an awards ceremony on 16th November, and will win a Thymio robot, created to help children discover the universe of robotics and robot programming. The projects will be selected for their originality, their quality of their work as well as their impact on questions of ecology (the age of the children, of course, being taken in account).
« How to » guide
On the platform, the children will be able to find some examples of short games, stories and quizzes, as well as a library of characters, backdrops, animals and objects among which they can
choose to create their own project!
Last year, the children had for example dreamed up selective sorting games in which one had to move a green matter recycling bin to catch the right waste, or quizzes about ecological transport solutions…
Take part in the challenge: organise a workshop in your club or for your children!
It’s possible to take part by submitting a project up until 10th November!
Two guides are available to give you all the necessary information via www.orange.com/codeforCOP22: one is aimed at children, to help them in the activity, and the other is for adults, to set up the game and accompany the children.
Please note: for your project to be considered for the competition, it is important to register by email (further information in the guides) and the share one’s project via the #SuperCoders 2016 platform: Code for COP22.
Now, it’s up to you!
