Spreading Innovation: Codeavour’s Worldwide Impact
Codeavour’s journey began humbly in 2019, focused on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), inspiring impactful projects. By 2020, it had grown tenfold, promoting innovation through AI and coding. In 2021, it saw a 14x participant increase, fostering innovation in environmental protection, health, and automation. Then, in 2022, it broke all records with 230x growth in four years. It established itself as a premier international AI, coding, and robotics competition for school students, nurturing student innovation and passion for coding and robotics.
In 2022, the support and involvement of our esteemed partners like Amazon Web Services (AWS), Motwani Jadeja Foundation (MJF), Atal Innovation Mission (AIM), and AI & Robotics Technology Park (ARTPARK) played a crucial role in making the International AI, Coding and Robotics competition a resounding success, with over 114,000 teams of students from 70 countries participating.
Codeavour 5.0 International Launch Ceremony
Codeavour 5.0 International had its grand launch on 27th October unfolding the amazing opportunities for students to showcase their talent using the latest technology.
The launch witnessed the presence of top industry experts like Mr. Ramanan Ramanathan (FIRST ATL Mission Director), Mr. Vikrant Goyal (Co-Founder Inventant Education), Prof. Teemu Leinonen (Associate Professor, Aalto University, Helsinki, Finland), and Dr. Ishha Farha Quraishy (Founder CEO, IFQ Technologies, UAE, Mrs. Universe Solidarity 2019), Mr. Patrick Kenny (Award winning STEM Educator, strategic and operational expertise to a global STEM education, Ireland, United Kingdom), Mr. Dhrupal Shah (CEO and Co-Founder STEMpedia).
Mr. Ramanan Ramanathan said, “At every local level, we need initiatives like Codeavour to amplify and multiply the many forward. When tinkering becomes the order of the day and access to tools and technologies, pedagogies, and new methodologies becomes accessible to them, they blossom to their full potential.
Mr. Vikrant Goyal, the co-founder of Inventant Education, said As we stand here, everyone, all of us, at the dawn of a new era in education, I would say the world is undergoing a very critical digital transformation. The skills that are required for the jobs of the future are changing rapidly. And in education, we are focusing on STEM because we believe that coding and AI are at the forefront of this transformation.
The panel had an invigorating discussion on the topic “Bridging the Gap Between Education and Entrepreneurship among Young Minds” where they shared thought-provoking insights on the topic.
In the panel discussion, Dr. Ishha Farah Quraishy (CEO and founder of IFQ Technologies, Mrs. Universe 2019 Solidarity) said that a collaborative platform like Codeavour can take education to another level, and Professor Teemu Leinonen from Aalto University Finland added that people should be empowered to use this kind of ability to do things themselves. So that brings us to the steam as well, experimenting, tinkering, and trying out. So it’s almost like not only that you can do something useful, but just doing the thing is educational.
The ceremony moved forward with the unveiling of two new tracks for the 5th edition of Codeavour and prizes that inspire participants to work for the betterment of society.
