Commissioner’s Digital Challenge

  • -
  • - (ACST)

Digital skills are life skills. They’re critical to future jobs, social inclusion and a more equitable world.

The Commissioner’s Digital Challenge is a free curriculum-aligned online resource teaching children and young people about computational, design and systems thinking skills.

Students can participate in any or all of the three different challenges: Learn to Speak Robot, Space to Dream and Zoom Out.

Learn to Speak Robot involves computational thinking, which is used for coding and is fundamental to teaching problem solving skills.

Space to Dream is a design thinking challenge which asks students to design a toy or gadget for someone who is moving to Mars.

Zoom Out teaches participants about systems thinking, which helps predict future outcomes by understanding how different parts contribute to the whole.

The Commissioner’s Digital Challenge is recommended for Years 2 to 10, but all students are welcome.

Registrations are now open and entries close Friday 29 September. Digital prizes will be awarded to the top-rated student entries.
