Using a coding challenge as a promotional event for a movie? This is a new one on me but it looks interesting. What I especially like is that they are sharing resources that students can incorporate into a game.
Here is a chance for your students to use their coding skills to win big!
Summer family movie EARTH TO ECHO is hosting "Code: Echo": a Challenge for students K-12 to create a game inspired by the film. Students can download assets and get creative.
In each category there will be:
- 1 grand prize winner ($5,000.00 + hometown screening)
- 1 runner-up prize winner ($2,500.00)
WHO CAN ENTER
Students of all ages, a team with up to 4 friends, or an entire classroom.
Entries are due May 2nd. Start coding at www.codeechomovie.com.
