Since 2015, Oracle Academy has sponsored the “Learn to Code with Alice” competition run by our partner Adfaber. In this competition, middle and high school students created interactive projects using Java. This year the theme was to “create an interactive lesson or game.”

 

Many of these students were discovering for the first time the Alice program and found out how they could create animations using Java, which has encouraged them to consider a future career in the IT domain.

 

With the guidance of their teachers, 256 middle schools and 126 high schools (764 students) from grades five through 12 participated in teams to complete their projects for this competition. Teams of students, IT employees, and computer science teachers judged all the projects enrolled in the Alice competition.

 

The jury took into account if student projects were aligned to the theme, the complexity of the projects, and creativity, and carefully analyzed each project submitted in the competition. At the end, three projects in the high school category and three in the middle school category were designated winners. This year's edition also introduced a new category of “special mentions” for the projects that attracted the attention of the jury for their effort and creativity.
