How do you build a team?
Your team needs to consist of 8 to 10 students from grades 3-5 or grades 6-8. Pick wisely! teams can only be a mix of different grades within the grade division. Team leader should be a teacher, instructor or parent. If you are a STEM teacher, a librarian or a parent, this is a great opportunity for you to get your kids involved. *The competition is only available for teams in the United States.
What are the technical requirements?
Each team member will get a personal CodeMonkey account. Members can log in using a desktop computer, laptop, Chromebook or tablet. An active internet connection is required. Each team also gets one teacher/librarian account for managing the student accounts and keeping track of the team progress.
