Boot Camp Runs Apr 9th – 29th

The CRCC (Cyber Robotics Coding Competition), now running in West Virginia is a new and exciting online competition using a cloud-based simulation platform featuring a virtual, 3D animated robot. The competition focuses on code development – the new frontier of STEM – Teams in grade levels compete from any Chrome computer browser to complete missions and challenges. Winners will be the schools who can best strategize, plan and complete the challenges.

About CoderZ

CoderZ  is a cloud-based platform that features a virtual, online, 3D graphical simulation of common robotics kits. CoderZ has a coding interface where users can activate the virtual robot, or “cyber-robot”, and watch the results in a real-time and accurate simulation. CoderZ uses curriculum and structured missions for students to learn STEM through the use of software code. Students learn the basics of coding and robotics through the fun, gamified platform where they accumulate points and are rewarded for their achievements.

Pedagogic Objectives of CRCC

  • Get educators and students excited about Computer Science
  • Develop collaboration between State education boards and local companies
  • Encourage participation – recognize schools & teachers investing in STEM
  • Lower the fear factor from coding, robotics and technology in general

Who, Why, What?

NASA IV&V Educator Resource Center, Fairmont State University,  and the ISCEF Foundation have combined to launch the Cyber Robotics Coding Competition (CRCC) in West Virginia. CRCC is a virtual competition offering easy access to students of middle and high school grade levels to an exciting competitive event to challenge their skills and showcase the school’s STEM achievements.

  • The competition will kick off with a teacher orientation and training to introduce the competition platform, CoderZ from Intelitek
  • The platform is available to all teachers and students to practice and learn.
  • The competition begins with the Boot Camp – students have access to a series of challenges to solve by coding the virtual robots. Registration for schools and students will be open, until the end of Boot Camp.
  • Schools who complete the most challenges and have the highest participation and diversity of students throughout the Boot Camp will qualify for awards.
  • All participants will advance to the Week of Code – a week long coding event with 21 master challenges.
  • Qualifiers with the best results during the Week of Code will progress to the face to face finals at Fairmont State University
  • Awards will be presented at the finals event.

Awards will be presented for:

Inclusiveness School with highest % of students participating in out of total enrollment
Diversity Grace Hopper Award for Highest % of girls participating in CRCC out of girls enrolled in the school
Finals Winner Team with the most points and the best quality of code in coding faceoff (1st, 2nd and 3rd prize)

Robotics and coding create pathways to careers and jobs in industry – through robotics, students in middle and high school learn not only mechanics and programming, but also the math, science and engineering principles behind robots. Cyber Robotics and Coding will help schools expand their approach to STEM using virtual training tools and take the skills that students learn to new practical levels.
