Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) along with Codingal brings you HPE CodeWars 2022. An online hackathon and coding competition designed to inspire, motivate and engage grade 9-12 students to learn to code and find innovative solutions to real-life issues. HPE CodeWars was founded by HP to help cultivate student interest in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) to develop future technology leaders.
Starting 23 years back, it has evolved into a phenomenon that students across the world look forward to. HPE CodeWars is a computer programming competition with the intent to evangelize coding amongst High School Students. Starting in 1998, CodeWars has since expanded to many countries including the USA, Spain, Taiwan, and India.
In addition to the regular coding competitions held in India this year, HPE CodeWars will also include hackathons. Grade 9-12 students across India can participate in the competition and six winners will win a chance to write code and run experiments on HPE’s Spaceborne Computer-2 (SBC-2), currently aboard the International Space Station (ISS). Participants will have a chance to win prizes worth ₹3,00,000 from HPE, a badge of honor from HPE and recognition certificates from STEM.org, along with mentorship from top HPE technologists.
Hackathons are a great way to enhance one’s coding skills, proficiency, and team-building skills. Here is an amazing opportunity for grade 9-12 students to take part in one of the largest coding hackathons in India. For Hackathon, you can participate individually or as a team consisting of a maximum of 3 members. The registration for the hackathon started on 21st Jan and will be open till 30th March 2022. You can submit ideas and projects around the following three themes:
- Theme 1: India 2030 Sustainable Development Goals
- Theme 2: Healthcare
- Theme 3: Cyber Awareness
In addition, the top 3 leaderboard positions for the coding competition and Winner for Hackathon get to run their program on Spaceborne 2 (SBC2) computer. HPE’s supercomputer SBC2 is part of a global experiment conducted by HPE and NASA to run a high-performance commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) computer system in space, which has never been done before. Don’t miss out on this once in a lifetime opportunity and register now for HPE CodeWars 2022.
At Codingal we look forward to continuing efforts of making each child fall in love with coding. If you need help to build your projects after registering for HPE CodeWars, book a free 1-on-1 session, and our expert teachers will be more than happy to help you.
