This proactive engagement highlighted a keen interest in integrating forward-thinking educational solutions into the nation’s learning ecosystem.

The workshop, tailored for computer science teachers, showcased the CodiTeach platform, offering tools for assessing student performance and monitoring the educational process.

A highlight of the event was a spirited competition orchestrated by the CodiPlay team, where 36 students from different schools showcased their prowess by assembling two unique projects out of 56 possible IoT projects using CodiKit kits. Tasks included the time-bound assembly of a barrier and an intelligent basket, testing the participant’s ability to work swiftly and efficiently under pressure. All participants received certificates, and six standout students were rewarded with memorable gifts and prize funds.
