EduCode Academy Video Contest Winners
May 5, 2020
We would like to thank all of the many EduCode teachers and learners who submitted entries for this contest. There were some very interesting videos and photos submitted, making it a very challenging job to pick the winners. Congratulations to Brenda from Mexico and Rianna from India for your winning submissions to our EduCode Video Contest in April!
Brenda will receive as her prize a full-year class subscription for 25 of her students for the next school year at her school in Monterrey, Mexico. It looks like it couldn't go to a better person: her enthusiasm and energy keeping her children occupied and learning during this difficult period is to be commended! We truly hope you and your students put EduCode Academy to full use next school year to help with their education in a very important subject area for their futures.
Rianna will receive a full-year subscription to access all of the EduCode Academy coding courses. Rianna's submission was a wonderful display of courage, enthusiasm and drive. We truly hope she will be able to take full advantage of these courses over the duration of the year and that the skills and experience gained with EduCode Academy will have a positive impact on her future.
Again, thank you to everyone for playing. We hope to have more contests like this throughout the year, so please follow us on our social media channels on Facebook
so you can enter in the next one.

With the COVID-19 pandemic situation, we are not able to thank our teachers in person for what they do for us and our children. We certainly learned to appreciate our undervalued teachers during these past weeks! Now, with our kids home and trying to continue the learning journey for them ourselves, we recognize how crazy a job teachers really have.

With businesses and schools closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, many education businesses are having to pivot to a new business model to adjust to the new normal. We reached out to a few of our coding camp partners to see what they are doing to address the needs of social distancing and what changes they are enacting – which may become a normal part of their offering going forward.

Now that COVID-19 has shut down many schools, as well as daycare centers, movie theaters and play houses, governments are recommending that we all practice social distancing in an effort to "flatten the curve." What does this actually mean?

We started this series of blog articles to help instructors, facilitators and educators plan, run and teach STEM classes or programs more effectively. Lessons should be as enjoyable and engaging for the teacher as the student.
