This Children’s day, Tinker Coders, an online coding platform, has launched #Beaproblemsolver campaign, a challenge for K-12 students to identify a solution to the problems that are prevailing in the society, such as Rising Air Pollution across the country, during COVID-19.
The initiative is designed to push tinkerers to find creative ways to solve sustainable development problems using their coding skills. The students can develop Mobile Applications, 3D Designs or make use of online circuits to demonstrate the ideas using Scratch software or MIT App Inventor.
Till now, the campaign has managed to gain more than 10,000 entries and the deadline for submitting the innovations is 14th November 2020.
In order to empower children, the campaign wants to convey a message to all young coders & parents to learn through Coding and to improvise the concept that Coding is not only meant for Engineers or technical work. It can also solve real-life based problems if used appropriately. The initiative is completely driven to bring out both innovative and empathetic sides of young coders while giving them a chance to think or be like Entrepreneurs.
Using Coding skills, the students can develop problem-solving Applications around Increasing Air pollution, Trees Depletion, Prevention of Marine Life, to name a few.
Anoop Gautam, CEO and Co-founder of Tinker Coders, said: “#BeAProblemSolver campaign is conceptualised to make children aware of our environment’s alarming situations and also to acknowledge that Coding turns early age children into KidsPreneur as they provide a one-stop solution for different kinds of problems surrounding us.”
The contest runs across Tinker Coders’ Facebook, Instagram and twitter channels.
