The NCSS Challenges starts on Monday 15 Feb! The challenge is 5 weeks long and runs twice a year. The Term 1 cycle offers Newbies, Beginner and Intermediate skill level courses. Advanced is only offered in Term 3 (July). For more information on streams, including which programming style they teach and curriculum alignment details, click here.

The Term 1 NCSS Challenge ( and all of the Grok Learning competitions ) is open to all students at schools with full Grok Access.. 

They are competitions in name but educational courses in nature, with expert tutors available online to help guide students to solutions and encourage them to keep going. The challenge aims to introduce students to coding in an open, informative environment where students are encouraged to ask for help.

Request a quote and get a free 3 week trial

Verified teachers can use our Get a Quote system in your teacher dashboard to request a quote tailored to your school's unique needs. As a bonus for using our new quote system, you will receive a 21 day free trial.

If you're not yet a verified teacher, we recommend that you start by registering for a teacher account with Grok. Once you create your free account you can request verification, which will provide you with free access to all of the courses and competitions on the Grok platform, together with access to solutions, teacher notes and our dashboard to assign courses to students and monitor their progress. Verification involves one of our team contacting your school to confirm your employment.

At the end of the trial, if you wish to continue using Grok, just confirm the quote and your students' access will stay active. If you do not confirm the quote, access will end after the three week trial and you will not be charged.
