The NSW Premier’s Coding Challenge (PCC) is designed to support the delivery of the Digital Technologies context within the new Technology Mandatory syllabus.
The challenge is open to all NSW schools, for learners in stage 4. Participating schools will benefit from a range of comprehensive support materials that underpin this challenge, including; online video tutorials, sample units of work, learner portfolio templates, and our ThinkerShield online community of practice.
Developed by the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences (MAAS), the ThinkerShield and associated learning materials help to bring digital technologies into the classroom. Based on Arduino – an open-source electronics platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software (based on the C programming language) – the ThinkerShield is the simplest, and most reliable way to get started with physical computing.
