Commissioners Digital Challenge

Commissioner for Children and Young People

 

The Commissioner for Children and Young People (SA) challenges children in South Australia to complete four coding / digital thinking activities during 2019.

 

This challenges Cub Scouts and Scouts across South Australia to enjoy fun and innovative activities that are free, step-by-step and suitable for every level of skill and experience to earn their exclusive ‘Speak Robot’ badge.

 

All children in South Australia are invited to take part in the Challenge here: https://commissionersdigitalchallenge.net.au/challenge-home-page/outside-school/#take-part 

 

The Challenge opens on 29 January 2019 and closes on 27 September 2019.

Each of the activities are:

  • Around one hour (some are shorter)
  • Are online (but some can be taught without devices)
  • Free
  • Accessible to all


You can choose any four lessons you like. Try coding with Star Wars®, Frozen®, Moana®, Angry Birds®, NBA® and Minecraft®, build a musical instrument, make a rock, paper, scissors game, make a bracelet that hides a secret message using binary code. There are hundreds of lessons to choose from – some that can even be completed without devices.

There’s a page of recommended activities for those with no prior coding experience.

Even if you are taking part in the Challenge at school, you can take part as many times as you like outside of school!

 


The ‘Speak Robot’ badge

Each Scout / Cub Scout is entitled to a maximum of one ‘Speak Robot’ badge.

The ‘Speak Robot’ badge could be used towards earning other badges like:

  • Information Technology
  • Technology
  • STEM
     

Venturers can speak to their local Scout Leader to discuss conducting sessions where they take a group of Cub Scouts through each activity as counting towards their Venturer Awards (for supervising activities)
