Competition

Asteroid Defense is a block based coding competition for schools. Students earn points by using their coding, critical thinking and robotics skills. Students aim their turret to break as many asteroids as possible. The player with the best defending algorithm earns the most points.

Students will be given a score after playing Asteroid Defense. Once they’ve been given a score, students will be placed on a leaderboard with other players. Students will have permission to refine and tweak their code to improve their score and compete to be the competition’s best coder!
