Participation is Free: Hour of Code Campaign Returns to Introduce Coding to Students

In conjunction with the Independence Day and Malaysia Day, #mydigitalmaker under the Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) has initiated an Hour of Code Campaign aimed to introduce coding and computer science to students through fun learning.

Participation is free and open to students (Malaysian citizens) aged 7 to 17 from all schools in Malaysia including private schools, international schools and home-schools.

The ongoing campaign which runs till September 30 also offers exciting lucky draw prizes and marks for the Physical Activity, Sports and Co-curriculum Assessment (PAJSK) at state-level (subject to assessment by the Ministry of Education).

Do take note that entry is on an individual basis while parental supervision is advised. Essentials for participation include internet connection and web browser on laptop, personal computer or mobile device.

Entry is divided into 2 categories: 7 to 10 years old and 11 to 17 years old. Each student is allowed to send in one module only for each category.

The module only takes between 40 to 60 minutes to complete and it can be done anytime till September 30.

A certificate of completion is available for download right after completion of the module as proof of participation.
