Spread the Word

We all are going through this COVID19 Phase and most of us are in lockdown. We want to engage the children in productive tasks during this time when their schools are shutdown. This lockdown challenge has been organized to give children an opportunity to showcase their creativity through coding.

The event will be successful if more and more people are aware of it and encourage children to participate in it. Kindly share with the children around you and motivate them to create and code  something of their own and showcase it among other participants from different parts of the world.

If you are a parent, an educator or a volunteer; and want to attend the event, please register here. It would be quite motivating for children to get suggestions and support from you.
