Can you help achieve the Global Goals? We’re setting you the biggest coding challenge yet!

We are excited to announce that Arm, World’s Largest Lesson and The Micro:bit Educational Foundation have co-created a brand new competition called the Global Challenge.

Using the BBC micro:bit, we want young people to design and make a solution to a problem that affects your community or a community somewhere else in the world and will contribute to meeting the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (Global Goals). We want you to think about how you can help achieve goal 3 (Good Health and Wellbeing)4 (Quality Education), and 16 (Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions) by focusing on the themes non-communicable diseases and safety. Maybe you have a great innovation which could make your school or community a safer place to be? Or it could be a device that will encourage people to get active and stay healthy?

The winners of the challenge will visit London on an all expenses paid trip and take part in an amazing micro:bit challenge day with other winners from all over the world!

The competition is open to young people across the world aged 8-12. You may work in a team or as an individual on the challenge.
