Nextech is sponsoring a CSforGood computer science competition for Indiana elementary, middle, and high school students.
To enter the competition, students will submit a project using technology - either an app, website, or a physical computing solution - to solve a problem in society or their community.
Final submissions due
March 5, 2021
Part One: Each submission must include a brief description (max 350 characters) on what the project is and how it solves the CSforGood problem.
Part Two: Each submission must include a short narrative (no more than 2 pages) on the process that your team followed in order to create your project. It should address the following: explains the process that your team used to come up with the idea/project, how is this project using computer science for good and solving a problem in your community or society, and what roles did each person on the team play in the process.
Part Three: Each submission must include a video demonstrating the project. It does not have to be high quality (e.g., shooting on a smartphone is perfectly acceptable). The video should be no more than 10 minutes. The video must be linked to in the question below. If the sponsor teacher opted for our Zoom recording offering, we will have emailed you the link. Please put that link in the “link to video” section.
No matter your age or experience, we want you to have all the resources you need to confidently participate in CSforGood. Here are just a few of our favorite resources. Can't find what you need? No problem. Just do a quick Internet search and you will find an unending list of resources.
