Announcing our STEMscopes Coding Contest Winners

Posted by Merritt Moses on May 10, 2021

This month we celebrated two special holidays, Mother’s Day and Teacher Appreciation Day. We invited students and teachers across the country to participate in a contest where students could code a virtual greeting card to honor their mothers, teachers, and caregivers. 

Of all the amazing virtual cards we received throughout the contest, the coded cards below were especially impressive, so we want to show off these students’ hard work! Scroll down to check out our contest winners and see what some very talented students were able to code with STEMscopes Coding!
