Creative Coders: Parents and children working together

As parents and children are spending more and more time together due to the pandemic, what fun and exciting, yet educational, things might they do together?

Coding is an area that parents and their children might find interesting to discover together.  Not only is it fun, but educational too, and has long term benefits in increasing digital literacy and citizenship. The HKFYG has launched the Creative Coder Competition - "Scratch x Digital Citizenship Parent-child Challenge". Sponsored by the Innovation and Technology Commission, with Caprikon Education as a Coding Partner, this challenge is targeted at primary school students and their parents. Participants will learn about computer programming with Scratch and will have opportunities to unleash their creativity by designing a two minute animation or a game on digital citizenship.
Interested families can enrol by Friday, 17 April, attend the Online Training Workshops between 20-30 April and submit their works by 15 May. Certificates will be given to all participants, and outstanding teams can even win a prize! So why not take up the challenge and explore the limitless possibilities in the world of coding with your children now?
