About the TI Codes Contest

The 2020 TI Codes Contest is based on a food-themed coding competition, designed to challenge students in Years 7-10 to use their STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths) skills to automate or optimise a process related to food using TI technology. 

Whether it is a smart food storage product for the home, a way to make food delivery more efficient or a more sustainable agriculture solution for Australian farmers, if it is related to food, it is eligible to win the TI Codes Contest Australia.

For students learning virtually or in a classroom, the TI Codes Contest is free to enter and the perfect challenge that is sure to set minds racing and creativity soaring. 

Secondary School Students and STEM Teachers are encouraged to read the rules and form a team to enter the TI Codes Contest today at:
