CYBER ROBOTICS CODING COMPETITION
Learning to code can be an intimidating challenge to anyone. It must seem especially daunting to students – and their educators – in an education system struggling to prepare them for the future where technology and jobs change so fast.
WHAT: The Cyber Robotics Coding Competition [CRCC] is an online competition event for middle schools to promote STEM and Coding using a gamified platform with virtual robot simulation. By engaging students in a competitive and fun environment, they get to experience technology, robotic automation, software development, and engineering topics in an unintimidating and easy to use format.
CRCC is cloud-based, allowing teachers and students to access the competition wherever they have an Internet connection, in school or at home; there is no need to buy, maintain or store expensive hardware.
This online coding tournament requires no prior coding or robotics knowledge from educators or students. CRCC allows teachers to easily introduce coding into classes and clubs in an engaging competition type format.
WHEN: The 2019 CRCC kicks off with a Teacher orientation webinar and two optional training webinars in September ramps up for student teams from October 7th through mid-November and culminates with a regional, in-person competition in December at UNH Durham, NH.
COST: CRCC is powered by the CoderZ Learning Environment and has only a modest registration fee to get full access for your class or your entire school. The registration for your classroom or club is just $250 or for all teachers and students in your school, at only $550.
This year the competition will also include a new School Finals that will allow each school to run their own internal event at the end of the season!
