The Block Code Contest is launching to celebrate the addition of Micro:bit to Tinkercad Circuits. To enter, make something using any platform that incorporates block coding and share what you made as an Instructable.
In addition to our usual prizes for the best projects, judges prizes will be awarded for:
– Best use of Micro:Bit in Tinkercad
– Best use of Tinkercad Codeblocks
If you are new to block coding here are some resources to help you get started:
– Tinkercad: Codeblocks
– Explore Micro:bit With Tinkercad
Create a new Instructable that fits the guidelines outlined in the contest description above. To be eligible, Instructables must be published between Nov 16, 2020 and Jan 11, 2021.
Upon publishing your Instructable you’ll see checkboxes for open contests. Select Block Code Contest. If you have entries currently eligible for entry, it will also show up by clicking “Enter this Contest” on the right side of this page.
Entries are accepted by Instructables staff within one business day Monday – Friday. What matters is the submission time, not acceptance time. Instructables members can vote for an entry during the contest plus 3 days after the contest closes.
A panel of judges made up of Instructables staff and respected members of the community rate the finalists. The averages of the ratings determine the winners. When the winners are decided they will be announced here on the contest page. All entrants will be notified when this happens.
