It’s easy to get stuck in a rut so we’re fans of competitions as they make us think about doing something special. We also get to see how others have approached the same brief.

So we encourage our Club members to participate in coding competitions whether run by us or CoderDojo and Code Club and our members have done well in the international coding competitions they’ve entered.

We run our own internal competitions at Easter and Christmas, and a competition open to all in Aberdeen or Aberdeenshire in the autumn. Click here for details of our Easter 2020 competition.

We also encourage those youngsters who are ready to participate in the Bebras Challenge (if they are in the top 10 percent of this then they can then enter the Oxford Coding Challenge).
