Last month, computer science students at Queenswood entered the prestigious Bebras Computing Challenge, which involved tackling a set of in-class computing tasks involving computational and logical thinking.
As you can see from the screengrabs below, the tasks were a mixture of conceptual puzzles and real-world problem-solving, such as controlling air traffic or tracking a blind pedestrian’s journey.
Bebras is a well-established competition that is carried out in over fifty countries and is sponsored by Oxford University and the Raspberry Pi Foundation. Top performing winners across the country will be invited to attend a further challenge day at Oxford University later in the school year.
Several Q students received a gold certificate, signifying a result in the top 10% of participants nationwide.
