The 2021 Call for Code Education Innovation Case Competition gives both non-technical and technical teams around the world an opportunity to devise innovative solutions that address the challenge of making quality education a right for all – not a privilege.

Challenge: Design an innovative technology solution that addresses a problem aligned to achieving accessible and equitable quality education.

Utilize This Offer

Successful teams require diverse skillsets to design unique solutions. Explore some of the personas that are often successful in case competitions, but remember: there is no one way to build a great team. In order to participate, you must meet all eligibility criteria.

The competition theme is, "A future of education that ensures accessible and equitable quality education and promotes lifelong learning opportunities for all," inspired by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 4 .

Your solution should address one of the diverse challenges aligned to this theme and demonstrate how technology can help communities in need around the world. While solution submissions do not need to include working code, you will need to describe the technologies required and how those technologies fit into the solution.

Design solutions that...
• Broaden educational opportunity for women, who continue to face steep structural and societal barriers;
• Relieve the burden of educational inequality that falls disproportionally on under-served communities;
• Democratize access to quality learning for all, in an increasingly digital world.

Build the future of education and new skills.
