The contest is over, but the activity is still available

Teachers, you can still take advantage of this engaging, relevant opportunity to broaden and deepen students' coding and problem-solving skills. Use the TI Codes Contest materials as a starting point to create and hold your own project-building contest with your students.

Here's the challenge: Identify an everyday process that can be automated or optimized, imagine and design the enhancement, then use Texas Instruments technology to build a model of the solution.
