Congratulations to Destination Imagination California team, The FDI, winner of our 2016 Dear Hero computer science challenge! For this challenge, we asked students: Who has made a difference in your life? If you had an opportunity to say thank you, what would you say? Using Oracle Academy’s Alice 3 software, students created a 3D computer-animated Thank You message that they could share with their hero.
Take a look at their winning video submission:
Our Dear Hero Challenge was our first-ever computer science challenge developed in collaboration with Oracle Academy and is the first of many opportunities for all students to learn about coding and computer science through Destination Imagination. Thank you to all of our students who participated!
