Girls in UK Computing Top 10%
Congratulations to Year 9 pupils Nifemi, Alice and Arwen, along with Year 13’s Kathryn, who have all ranked in the top 10% in the UK following the Bebras Computing Challenge.
Over the course of a week, girls took part during Computing lessons. The aim of the competition is to solve as many short, online problems as possible. The problems are designed to be similar to those Computer Scientists regularly face, and develop computational thinking. This involves using problem-solving techniques employed by software engineers when they write programmes or develop apps.
Scored out of 200, a minimum mark is required to fall within the top 10%, and Nifemi, Arwen, Alice and Kathryn all reached this standard. Well done, girls!
