Education

The Microsoft Developer Experience team worked closely with The Learning Partnership in developing the Bloodhound BBC micro:bit Rocket Car Competition as a way we could jointly look to achieve engagement by secondary school children in STEM broadly and coding/computer science specifically.  By working with The Learning Partnership we were able to take advantage of their existing education outreach and education portal – Dendrite – as well as work closely with their team of experts on curriculum development, educator outreach and the rocket car challenge.  The impact and scale the competition has made is a testament to the inspirational nature of the initiative along with the combined desire and ambition both organisations have to support educators and inspire young people to engage with STEM and coding.
