Great Prenda Code Challenge

Ages 8 to 18
Submission due July 31

Throughout the summer it’s up to you to build something awesome! We’ll give you all the tools, but at the end of the day, it’s going to take your effort, creativity, and skill. Don’t know how to code yet? You’re in the right place. Prenda’s Code Club software is stocked with tutorials to get you started. At some point in the summer, you’ll want to start working on a Mission, because that’s how you’ll win a prize.

Register for the challenge and enter your submission here.


First, second and third place will be awarded for two age groups: 8-12 year olds and 13-18 year olds

Third place: Makey Makey
If you haven’t played with a Makey Makey, you are in for a treat. Marketed as an “Invention Kit for the 21st Century,” it’s about the most mad scientist device we can think of. Wire up the real world and start coding it.
