Code Challenge - DreamOval Foundation

The AfriCAN Code Challenge is an exciting Pan-African competition that invites youth aged 8-16 years residing or attending school in Ghana, to program a game using the SCRATCH coding language, based on a set theme. The Challenge offers a unique opportunity for young Ghanaians to identify key issues in their communities and through coding, develop unique ways to address these problems.

Do you have a passion for tech and innovation? Would you like to play a part in the future of education? The AfriCAN Code Challenge is open to you. Interested youth can enter individually or in a team of up to five (5) team members. Entries involve the submission of a three-minute YouTube video showcasing how your game works and why it should be the winning entry.
