This week all Key Stage 3 pupils and those taking Computer Science at Key Stage 4 and Key Stage 5 have participated in the UK Bebras Computational Thinking Challenge. The Bebras Computing Challenge introduces computational thinking to students.
It is organised in over 40 countries and designed to get students all over the world excited about computing.
You may remember last year Bishop Luffa School had success with Will Lynas (then in Year 8) he was one of 36 students from a field of over 40,000 entries in his age range to be invited to the Bebras Computational Thinking Challenge Finals at Oxford University during the February half term holiday, and his name appears on the UK Bebras Hall of Fame.
Good luck to all those completing the challenges, we’ll receive the results in early December. I’ll be sending postcards home to the top pupils in each class so you can celebrate their success.
