Coding Challenges For Everyone.

What Is The Monthly Coding Challenge?

Welcome to Brilliant Labs Monthly Coding Challenges.  These are easy to follow challenges for all learners (P-12).   We have grouped the challenges, but they can be done by any age or grade level… and at any time! 

Why Is Coding Important?

Coding, or computer programming, is a skill that can be learned by anyone and offers youth confidence in many overarching acidemic diciplines.  It helps students comprehend a structured set of instructions and gives them the tools needed solve problems in logical ways, while learning how to be patient.  Let’s face it, coding can be frustrating and mistakes happen, but when students learn to logically problem solve they feel a sense of great accomplishment by finding, fixing and successfully running their programs.  Creating with code also builds a student’s creativity in art and storytelling.   There are so many learning outcomes when coding is welcomed in the classroom and Brilliant Labs can help you make those connections!
