How the Code Challenge Works

1. Accept the Challenge

Accept the coding challenge by registering. Kids can register with a parent email and teachers can register a whole class.

 

2. Complete 21 Levels of Coding Questions

Challengers will be presented with one question every day at 8:00AM on the Code Challenge platform starting April 5, 2021. Those who answer correctly will qualify for the next level, which is presented the next day. The first 21 questions are written in Python, but cover concepts across languages.

 

3. Write a Program to Defeat the Boss

Once you have answered all 21 questions correctly, you will receive the boss level question in the Code Challenge platform. You will be required to submit a program in Python or JavaScript.

 

4. Win by Public Vote and Code Review

Defeat the final boss level by writing code that produces a correct answer. Your code will be posted in our Hall of Champions for a public vote. The top 10 challengers with the most votes will be judged by our Wizard Panel for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place.
