All the boys in Y3 and Y4 along with the current computing rotation in Middle School took part in the UK Bebras Computational Thinking Challenge this week.
The Challenge is an online competition open to all schools in 40 different countries. It introduces pupils to computational and logical thinking. The Bebras challenges are made of a set of short problems or tasks and are delivered online, it takes 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 all the boys involved have had a practice lesson. 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. Boys will be issued with certificates in relation to their standard of award.
