With our goal of building young Tech Leaders in Africa with a passion for problem-solving and innovation through Coding, AmaliTech in collaboration with SOS Children’s Villages Ghana organised our maiden Coding for Kids (C4K) National Coding Competition at Tema SOS Hermann Gmeiner School, in Greater Accra region on the 11th of March 2022.
Contestants from all four branches of Hermann Gmeiner Schools appeared all prepped up and in high anticipation for the competition. Students from other schools were elated to have been invited to witness and draw inspiration from this competition. The competition tested the critical thinking and problem-solving abilities of the kids, and their ability to apply the knowledge and skills they had received for the past 8 months.
The primary contestants were tasked to use the Scratch software to create a quiz game, a car racing game, and a football match game, whereas the junior high students were to use HTML & CSS to create a single-page website to showcase the services of AmaliTech.
All participants were awarded certificates of participation, and the winning teams and first runners-up received cash prizes and trophies.
Conclusively, the performance of all contestants was tremendously impressive and this competition challenged their creative and team-working abilities, as well.
As part of the event, the C4K project was officially launched with various dignitaries in attendance.
