Abstract

Turing is an interscholastic tournament that aims at promoting the teaching of informatics, particularly the learning of programming through gamification. It is a competition between secondary schools, organized by teachers of informatics, for their own students. Turing was developed due to the lack of tournaments and competitions organized by teachers in this level of education. By contrast, universities and polytechnic institutes regularly organize programming tournaments, aimed at students of both secondary schools and universities. Given that its Turing is a pilot project, the first edition of the tournament will take place in March 2020 and it will occur simultaneously in three secondary schools. The students who are (voluntarily) enrolled in Turing will have an hour and thirty minutes to solve a set of problems in C programming language via Web, through the E-Learning platform Moodle while using the plugin CodeRunner.
