The cybersafety heroes need help to keep young Queenslanders safe and secure in a digital world.

Will your students accept the challenge and #code4Qld? Entries open on Wednesday, 26 July 2017 and the competition will close on Tuesday, 12 September 2017.

The Premier’s Creating Queensland’s Future coding competition is now open to all Queensland students of state, Catholic and independent schools in Years 5 to 10.

Great prizes are up for grabs in this competition, which encourages students to use coding and create a digital solution that meets the challenge.

  • Team: Arduino Starter Kit

Entries could be an interactive animation, a game or even an app – just to name a few! It’s only limited by a student’s imagination.

The competition aligns to the Australian Curriculum: Digital Technologies, so it’s easy to get students involved.

Entries must be received by 12 September 2017. The winners will be announced at the i-Educate 2017 conference in Brisbane on 3 November 2017.
