FOBISIA Creative Coding Challenge KS2 - Bangkok Prep

FOBISIA Creative Coding Challenge KS2

Dear Bangkok Prep Community,

To promote computing in FOBISIA schools the fourth FOBISIA Creative Coding Challenge started this year. Children who have shown promise and interest in computing in Year 5 and Year 6 were selected to take part in the FOBISIA Creative Coding Competition 2019, held by North London Collegiate School Jeju.

During the online event, students worked in teams of up to 3, and were given a mission to create an Augmented Reality application using a new piece of software called ‘Metaverse’. Children in their teams had to create their app and document it entirely by themselves with no input from the teacher; a truly child-led project.

The aim was to enjoy problem-solving, be creative and imaginative and have fun building and documenting their apps. There are no winners. Instead, children were given a certificate ranging from:

  • Commended,
  • Highly Commended,
  • Excellent
  • Outstanding level.

The Individuals/Teams who were selected and took part were (and with their results):

  1. Fhal-La Tanskul                                                                      Commended
  2. Matt Jatupornpakdee and Min Seo Kim                            Commended
  3. Teddy Millar and Ryan Bevan                                              Commended
  4. Alexia Kravchenko                                                                  Commended
  5. Arsh Gupta, Finley Collins and Elliot Fletcher                 Highly Commended
  6. Boon Lourvanij, Krish Patel and Nathan Stellman         Highly Commended

Considering this was the first time they have had to complete an open ended project such as this one, I was really proud to see all of the students spend their own time during break, lunches and at home to complete their projects. They had a total of three weeks to complete the project, I was ecstatic to see all of the students complete the project on time (even though Year 5 had a Residential Trip happening during this time too!) They truly showed that they have the ‘Bangkok Spirit’ and put our Bangkok Prep life Values on show. Congratulations to all students who participated this year.

We thank NCLC Jeju for putting on such a valuable, interesting and fun online competition this year. We hope to build upon this success next year and select and enter more students who show promise in computer science into the competition once again.
