Congrats Code Project Cohort of 2022!

10 May 2022 - 2 minute read

Each year, we invite young people to take part in the Altitude Foundation Code Project for a chance to learn more about electronic prototyping and how digital skills can help improve lives around the world. In 2022, our young people were challenged to create digital prototypes that addressed either a challenge for Life on Land or Life under the Sea, in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Every two weeks, we would get together virtually to learn more about planning a prototype, writing project proposals, programming and more! Each student contributed amazing and imaginative ideas for how computing could help solve problems such as light pollution, noise pollution, litter on beaches, poaching, overfishing and ocean acidification. 

For our finale, students attended a full day Hackathon at the Centre for Life Making Studio! This was a final chance to finish any programming and designs before trustees and parents were invited to attend the Exhibition! All attendees had a chance to talk to students about their prototypes and how these would address the UN Sustainable Development Goals that were part of the Code Project Challenge.

We’re hoping that students will take the opportunity to showcase their fabulous ideas as part of the Do your:bit Challenge from the micro:bit Foundation, so they can share their ideas even more widely – We can’t wait to see what they get up to next!

Are you a young person aged 14-18 and want to learn more about our programme of activities? Fill in our Registration of Interest form using our Airtable link
