What is HACK@CODE?


Check out the results here! –>  Hackcode2021 Results

HACK@CODE is a national online thematic coding competition jointly organized by Code.JAM and Tribal Studioz that calls on young coders of any ages between 7 to 14 years old to put their coding skills into actions.

Based on a given theme, participants can sign up as individuals or form teams (with not more than 3 per team) to create interactive stories, animations, games or a hybrid of all using the Scratch platform to showcase their creative ideas and solutions. There will be 3 age categories that participants will be competing in: 

    • Junior Category (Age 7 to 9 i.e. Primary 1 to Primary 3)
    • Intermediate Category (Age 10 to 12 i.e. Primary 4 to Primary 6)
    • Senior Category (Age 13 to 14, Secondary 1 & 2)

The theme for 2021’s competition is The Future of Transportation. Since early times, humans have sought ways to make traveling faster and more convenient. First, we invented the wheel, then carts and wagons, steam power, and the internal combustion engine. The innovation continued with electric cars, bikes and autonomous vehicles. Ideas that seemed to belong only to the realm of science fiction are being made a reality. Defying gravity by flying through the skies on a jetpack, riding in a flying taxi and travelling long distances at supersonic speed are made possible with advancement in technology. Unleash your creativity by peeping into the future how we will move both ourselves, products and goods from place to place.
