What is HACK@CODE?
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 2020’s competition is 2050. As the whole world is still recovering from the unprecedented attack of the COVID-19 virus, we have directly or indirectly witnessed many areas of our lives to be badly affected by it. While it may appear that everything looks all doom and gloom but the glowing light of the indomitable human spirit will eventually pierce through all darkness and overcome all obstacles. Let’s focus our attention on how we can create a better future in 2050 both for ourselves and our future generation and work our way towards achieving it. The theme “2050” is purposely kept widely open so feel free to unleash your full creative powers.
