We got Third Place in the Coding Mash-Up!

From the mashup.codeclub.org website

On Saturday the 8th of November Grace, Georgia, Hannah-Rose and Lydia (8W) competed in the 2014 Coding MashUp competition. This event was for 13 - 18 year olds but we received an invitation to compete from our Code Club co-ordinator.  


When we all first heard about this competition we didn’t know what to expect. But when we walked in we were surprised to find out that this event wasn’t all about coding, it was actually mostly about business and how to start up your own.


Throughout the morning we had two 45 minute talks. One on the basics of business and another about hardware and what it could be used for. At the start of our business lesson we realised that hardly anybody knew anything about business at all! But by the end of it we had all learnt much more than we had known previously.



During the hardware lesson we learnt about what different types of hardware could be used for and their costs. It was great to have these lessons because they taught us some vital skills and gave us some important knowledge that we would need throughout the day.



After having a break we got straight into idea generation with our teams. The point of this exercise was to come up with some pausable ideas to solve real world problems. The areas we could base our ideas around were Pollution, Earthquake Early Warning System, Health and Internet of Things. These ideas were all written on pieces of paper and handed into the judges. Our next step was to choose one of our ideas and create a business plan for the product through ‘Lean Canvas’. Lean Canvas is an online service that provides business planning sheets that you can work on then download. We all found this a great tool to use for planning.





This lead onto our 30 second pitches performed by one member in our group. Lydia, who has a fear of public speaking, bravely went up and did a great job! From this there were 4 cash prizes.
  • Best Pitch - $50
  • Best idea - $50
  • The most ideas - $50
  • Best Internet of Things ideas - $30
Surprisingly our team won the prize for the ‘Best Internet of Things ideas’!


Following things we had 3½ sprints. Sprints are periods of time that you work in without stopping, our sprints were 45 minutes long. In between each sprint we had time to reflect on the work we had completed and what we could do better in our next sprint.


Finally we had to present our product to the judges through a 2-3 minute pitch. our product was the ‘SmartClock’! Lydia and Georgia spoke for our team and made a presentation to go with it.

Every team had really great products but the judges had he tough job of picking three teams for 1st, 2nd and 3rd. The cash prizes were as follows …
  • 1st prize - $200
  • 2nd prize - $100
  • 3rd prize - $50

And we came in 3rd place! We were all really ecstatic and couldn’t believe our Y8 team had been placed third against all of those high school teams. We all really enjoyed this event and would definitely recommend it.
