The Elective curriculum was delivered in the afternoon session to only 5100+ interested students.
The objective of the competition is to provide a platform to the students to express their creativity with the help of the concepts taught in the school.
Coding has become an extremely beneficial skill to have in the 21st century to become future-ready and this competition strives to provide an opportunity to use geometric shapes to creatively depict solutions. Coding helps develop skills such as critical thinking, problem-solving and decomposition which are essential for tackling something as big and important as changing the world.
The competition will be an amazing opportunity for students to develop and showcase their coding skills, design skills and most importantly, have a lot of fun!
