European Code League
We invited you and your students to get creative and present your innovative coding projects for STEM lessons in primary and secondary schools at the European Code League.
A jury has selected ten teams from numerous applications. The virtual final took place on 28 May, where the question was answered: What is Europe's best coding concept?
The Romanian team "Caelify" won first place. In their project the students measured different air parameters such as concentration of CO2, humidity, pressure, temperature, noise, and other noxious substances in their town, using sensors. The data was transferred to a server so the students could access and work with it at any time.
The teachers will now participate in the European Science on Stage Festival 2022.

In the evaluation process a jury chosed the final teams using the following criteria:
- Quality of the project (relevance of the topic, sustainibility and outreach of the project, didactic approach, learning experience for the students etc.)
- Creativity (innovativeness of the project and the implemantation)
- Active involvement of the students (inquiry based learning, teamwork, design thinking, project work etc.)
- Presentation of the result (content and quality of the poster and video)
- Fundamental Science in 1’s and 0’s
How does the world around us work? Students simulate, analyse and explore scientific phenomena using digital tools.
- Microcontrolling the World
How do we use digital tools to connect with the world around us? Students design, code and build various applications to interact with their environment (Internet of Things, human-machine interface, remote control and automation, artificial intelligence, etc.)
- Environment 4.0
How can we use digital tools to explore and protect nature and our environment? (Implementation of simulation, microcontrollers, sensors etc. for environmental aspects)
