MAV, in collaboration with Digital Learning and Teaching Victoria (DLTV), have produced a series of engaging coding challenges to be experienced in various platforms. They’re designed to extend your Yr 7 - 10 students and captivate them with problem solving challenges that will require both their intellect and creativity. In this workshop, you can experience the challenges for yourself and find out how you can get access for your students for free!
