FAQ

Below is some helpful info on CoderZ League and how it all works.

About CoderZ League

CoderZ League (formerly CRCC – Cyber Robotics Coding Competition) is an exciting, engaging, and entertaining virtual robotics competition for students of all levels to participate and learn about STEM, robotics, and coding and to ignite their technology career paths. CoderZ League is cloud-based, can be accessed from any computer, and uses simulation of virtual 3D Robots that perform complex tasks and missions. Using strategizing, collaboration, and acquired programming techniques, students will compete within their team, class, school, district, and state to win stages and progress to the finals. 

The major difference is the difficulty level of the challenge. CoderZ league Junior is a beginner to intermediate level of coding and is great for students with little or no coding background or with basic experience in coding and/or robotics. CoderZ league Pro requires an intermediate to advanced level of coding knowledge. 

CoderZ League is our new brand for CRCC. But besides our new branding, CoderZ League presents two different challenges for different skill levels, while the game, goals, and environment are more exciting and engaging!  

For whom?

CoderZ League Junior is ideal for beginning coders, schools new to CoderZ League, and for students between 5th and 8th grade*.

CoderZ League Pro is ideal for students between 7th and 12th grade *.

*Students in any grade level can participate in either League. However, the best fit is for the grades mentioned. 

CoderZ League is available for teams across the globe, from a small group of up to 5 students to an entire school.

Students work together and earn points as a team based on their achievements.

This link is also on the CoderZLeague.com webpage.

There are two types of leaderboards.

Public leaderboards: Class performance/Team performance

Scoreboard: Individual performances compared with those of classmates.

For Teachers

  • Foster student motivation and curiosity during each competition phase.
  • Help your team/class define a strategy.
  • Monitor students’ involvement and progress levels.
  • Encourage and empower everyone to contribute to their team/class success.
  • Ask questions and help your students get to their own answers.

No background knowledge is required and teachers from any discipline can participate. CoderZ is self-paced and allows teachers to learn basic concepts of STEM and coding alongside students. Teachers can monitor student progress and appoint team leaders to help struggling students.

Teachers will have access to a user guide, CoderZ tours and tips, helpful webinars, and classroom heatmap reporting tools to show student progression. Teachers who choose to start their journey with our recommended background courses will get access to the curriculum teachers guide, lesson plans, mission solution files (for course missions), student heatmaps, tours and tips, links to presentations, videos, and more.

The competition officially begins with an opening round on October 15. Phases will be released at various intervals culminating in a final round scheduled for December – specific date TBA.

This depends on you and your students. Students can spend as little as 1 hour per week participating. Those students who dedicate more time and define their limits based on their current homework or extra-curricular schedules. Students who allocate more time to the competition will have the opportunity to improve their knowledge, skills, results, and scores anytime and anywhere they have access to a computer and the Internet.
