Coder Sports Hackathon Challenge for Schools

CS Intro course


Empowering the Next Generation of Digital Innovators

Welcome to the Coder Sports Hackathon Challenge, an engaging, hands-on coding experience designed for elementary school students. Our mission is to ignite a passion for computer science and coding from a young age, equipping students with critical skills in teamwork, problem-solving, and technology that are essential for their future.

Transforming Classrooms into Coding Arenas

The Coder Sports Hackathon Challenge revolutionizes the classroom setting by introducing a dynamic coding competition right where learning happens every day. Students are grouped into “coder teams” of 2 to 4, diving into a series of fun yet challenging coding activities. This inclusive program ensures every student, regardless of prior coding knowledge, has the opportunity to participate and discover the joy of coding.

Mentorship by Assistant Coder Coaches

A standout feature of our program is the mentorship provided by Assistant Coder Coaches—11th-grade students from local high schools who are currently completing their co-op placements at Coder Sports. These enthusiastic coaches mentor the younger students, offering insights, support, and inspiration. Their involvement not only enhances the learning experience but also exemplifies the exciting opportunities available through continued engagement with STEM.

Engaging Coding Challenges

Our hackathon challenges are thoughtfully developed to captivate, educate, and inspire. Each task introduces essential coding concepts and computational thinking strategies in an entertaining and interactive way. Whether crafting simple games or solving logical puzzles, students learn to collaborate effectively, showcasing the value of teamwork and clear communication in achieving common goals.

Available to Every Elementary School

At Coder Sports, we’re committed to democratizing access to quality computer science education. The Coder Sports Hackathon Challenge is designed to be easily integrated into any elementary school curriculum, bringing the excitement and educational value of coding to students everywhere.
