Beyond Programming: A New Learning Experience
The Build-A-Thon distinguishes itself by going beyond traditional programming competitions. Instead, it strives to introduce a fresh learning experience designed to cultivate essential life skills among senior secondary school students. By delving into embedded systems and maker culture, this event opens doors to a world where innovation meets collaboration.
The Numbers Speak Volumes
This year’s Build-A-Thon is set to make waves with an impressive lineup:
4 days of intense collaboration and creativity
Participation from 150 schools
Over 1500 young minds ready to embrace the challenges
Mask Group (2) guiding and inspiring the participants simultaneously
Simultaneous Collaboration with Technology
Picture this: students from different schools, backgrounds, and cultures coming together simultaneously in three distinct locations. The energy is contagious as these young minds collaborate, armed not just with coding skills but also with the power of teamwork and creativity. The event serves as a testament to the potential of technology to bridge gaps and foster collaboration on a grand scale.
Exceptional Teams, Exceptional Recognition
Build-A-Thon is not just about participation; it’s about recognizing excellence. Exceptional teams in each location will be acknowledged across various categories, including:
- Most Innovative Design
- Most Sustainable Project
- Award for the Project with the Most Utility
- This recognition extends beyond a mere certificate or trophy; it’s about celebrating the power of ideas and the impact they can have on the world.
Mask Group: A Unique Opportunity for Exploration
The presence of the Mask Group adds an extra layer of uniqueness to the event. Comprising experts and mentors, the Mask Group serves as guides, providing insights and encouragement to students as they navigate the exciting landscape of embedded systems and maker culture. This unique opportunity opens doors for students to explore ideas that go beyond the conventional, encouraging them to dream big and think outside the box.
As we gear up for the biggest Build-A-Thon yet, the anticipation is palpable. The event promises not just to be a coding competition but a transformative experience that leaves an indelible mark on the minds of the participating students. Embedded systems and maker culture are not just concepts; they are gateways to a future where innovation and collaboration reign supreme. Let the Build-A-Thon be the catalyst that propels our senior secondary school students into this exciting realm, where possibilities are limitless, and ideas know no bounds.
