Record Results in Bebras Challenge

Earlier this half term, pupils at Caterham School sat the Bebras Challenge. This is an international competition organised by the University of Oxford and taken in over 40 countries, stretching pupils’ computational thinking skills. More than half our pupils were awarded the top merit or distinction levels. The Bebras challenges consists of a set of short problems that are delivered online. The tasks are fun, engaging and based on problems that computer scientists often meet and enjoy solving. The tasks can be solved without prior programming knowledge but instead require logical thinking.
