The Australian Government is funding the Australian Digital Technologies Challenges for Year 5 and 7 students. The University of Sydney is developing an online series of 18 free, structured, progressive teaching and learning activities and challenges for all year 5 and 7 students, aligned to the Australian Curriculum. The initiative includes lesson plans, professional learning and online support for teachers and is funded to 2020.

The first four challenges are now available on the Australian Computing Academy.
