Last week 36 boys across the Middle and Upper School took part in the UK Bebras Computational Thinking Challenge.
The Challenge is an online test open to all schools in 40 different countries. It introduces pupils to computational and logical thinking. The challenges are made of a set of short problems or tasks which are delivered online, and it takes about 40 minutes to complete.
The tasks the boys undertake are usually fun, engaging and on problems that Computer Scientists often meet and enjoy solving. There is no prior knowledge required to do the challenge, but an interest in computer science or mathematics helps.
The challenges are of different abilities depending on the age of the boy. We wish all the boys who took part good luck and look forward to seeing the results of the challenges soon.
