STEMGuyana Announces Winners Of Their 2018 Scratch Programming Pilot Competition For Local Youth

STEMGuyana will continue their club MIT Scratch coding competition for local youth on Saturday January 13.  The organization is conducting a pilot competition every Saturday morning in January to identify, analyze and iron out the kinks associated with their upcoming co-sponsored Scratch, Maths and Robotics coding league to be launched nationally in February 2018.

Primary and Secondary school students who wish to learn to code using MIT Scratch are encouraged to come to the Sports Hall at 10am on Saturday mornings to  observe and learn to code well enough to compete.  For those interested in participating with their own team.  Click here to download Scratch and practice mini projects at this link.


January 6th Challenge
“The water cycle describes how water evaporates from the surface of the earth, rises into the atmosphere, cools and condenses into rain or snow in clouds, and falls again to the surface as precipitation. The water falling on land collects in rivers and lakes, soil, and porous layers of rock, and much of it flows back into the oceans, where it will once more evaporate. The cycling of water in and out of the atmosphere is a significant aspect of the weather patterns on Earth.”Participants are to review the water cycle (google) and represent it creatively using Scratch Programming.
January 11th Challenge
