Students take part in a worldwide computational thinking competition.
In IT/Computer Science lessons, students have been recently been taking part in a worldwide computational thinking competition called Bebras. This is a challenge where they use their problem-solving skills and techniques that would include the ability to break down complex tasks. They had to complete 18 tasks ranging in difficulty, but correctly answering the most difficult questions will bring them the most points.
Well done to 27 students who achieved a score within the top 10% in the country for their own age group, competing against 100,000 other entrants.
As a result of their success, these students will be asked to participate in the TCS Oxford Computing Challenge, an invitation only Challenge for students in the UK aiming to help talented computational thinkers develop their skills by asking them to solve tasks with programmed solutions.
