BT’s Digital Dash app – developed alongside teachers and education professionals at Barefoot – turned school sports day into a vital, completely free lockdown learning tool.
Kids created their avatar and competed in mini challenges that taught them about algorithmic and sequential thinking. The better their mental performance in the challenges, the better their athletic performance on the track. Kids developed invaluable computational skills and had fun as they went head-to-head with other players across the country.
Thousands raced toward our live YouTube final – hosted by Reggie Yates and double Olympic gold medallist, Dame Kelly Holmes – bringing the best players across the nation together for a sports day like no other. The eventual winners were crowned the champions of Digital Dash and received £30,000 worth of tech equipment for their schools.
