Game of Codes Final Day

6th April 2022

Our annual coding competition for pupils in Wales is back! This year, we’re asking participants to create a piece of software under the theme Combatting Climate Change.

Our Game of Codes competition is an opportunity for pupils to develop their problem solving, communication, and teamwork skills while improving their knowledge of computer programming in a fun and inventive way.

The challenge is to create a piece of software under the theme Combatting Climate Change. Examples could include games to teach the importance of tackling environmental issues, apps to help people with recycling and reusing materials, Scratch games to teach climate science, a world in Minecraft to show how flood defences work, or something that helps us learn about climate change in a new, fun way.
