Challenge (Beginners) 2019

Perfect for beginners of all ages learning to code with text. Competition starts on July 29th, 2019.

Learn how to program in Python while you compete with students from around the world! The Beginners stream is designed for students with no prior experience at programming. This level is most suited to students in junior secondary school (12 - 16 year olds) or anyone who wants to start with the basics.

We offer two versions of the Beginners challenge, one in Blockly (block-based coding) and one in Python (coding with text -- this one). You can start the Python course below, or try the Blockly version instead.

Data collected during the NCSS Challenge is governed by our Policies & Procedures.
