The Bebras Computing Challenge introduces computational thinking to students. It is established in over 40 countries and designed to get students all over the world excited about computing.
Year 7 and 8 Nucleus students have taken part in the Bebras Challenge during their Computer Science lessons. The challenge encourages them to think more logically about problem-solving. This fits in well with the current scheme of work both year groups are following in their programming lessons.
The challenge is made up of short puzzles, varying in difficulty. The more difficult the problem, the more points awarded.
The results have been collected for the in-school competition and the top scoring students from each class were:
Year 7: 3rd – Emma, 2nd – Holly, Joint 1st – Daniel and Jesse
Year 8: 3rd – Jessica, 2nd – Joshua, 1st – Zaki
We are thrilled to announce that Jesse, Daniel, Holly, Ben, Emma, Jack, Zaki and Josh, have all been invited to take part in the Oxford Computing Challenge in March as they achieved a top 10% score in the UK.
