The DVLA Code Challenge is back for 2018!


Get involved with Programming, Imagine it, Code it, Build it, and Win it!

Last year’s event was brilliant with over 180 children and 150 adults attending the prize giving event held at the Richard Ley Development Centre in Swansea in November. Thousands of pounds worth of prizes were given out to 50 Primary schools and Community Groups in Wales thanks to our fantastic sponsors.

So we’ve decided to do it all over again and this time we are adding a new age group and opening up the competition to children aged between 7 and 11 and 11 to 14. This means that we can include both Primary and Secondary schools.

This year’s Code Challenge will enable interested pupils to develop their problem solving, communication and teamwork skills as well as improving their knowledge of computer programming in a fun and innovative way and also win thousands of pounds of IT equipment for their schools or Groups.

There will be a Competition Prize Giving Event hosted by Lucy Owen (BBC Wales News Presenter) on Tuesday the 4th December 2018 and a prize draw to win IT Equipment.
