BEBRAS Computational Thinking Competition

10 December 2015

Most of the boys in the school took part recently in a computational thinking competition run by Bebras and sponsored by the University of Oxford. It is the first time we have done this at Caldicott and it is a problem solving contest which requires the boys to use skills such as looking for patterns and spotting sequences to solve problems. Questions are inspired by topics in computer science. More than 50,000 children took part nationally and the Caldicott boys did extremely well with some of them finding themselves on the Hall of Fame. For further information and to have a go at some sample questions, please visit the following web page: http://www.beaver-comp.org.uk/.
