EU Code Week Challenges are quick activities of different kinds involving coding and computational thinking. They are aimed at people involved in training activities with kids that want to participate in the EU Code Week but don't really have an idea of what to organize or time to do so. During the 2021 edition of the initiative, which takes place between 9 and 24 October, 18 new challenges have been launched.

They are all easy-to-make activities that have been designed along with the EU Code Week partners, that you can do on your own, in the classroom, with colleagues or friends. Every challenge includes also concrete examples of how to use it in a classroom or group, to make the activities a potential learning resource for kids.

Challenges cover a different range of coding activities and go along with guidelines on how to complete. However, all users can adapt them to their own group or class, so that they suit the needs, interests and age of the participants. That is why anyone interested is invited to choose one or several challenges and share the results on Instagram to encourage even more colleagues and friends to engage in the Code Week fun!
