UK Bebras Computational Thinking Challenge 2019

Thursday 28 November 2019

Shrewsbury School Third and Fourth Form pupils are among the top achievers in a national computing challenge. 

The Bebras Computing Challenge is organised in over 40 countries and is designed to introduce computational thinking to students all over the world and get them excited about computing.

The University of Oxford, in partnership with the Raspberry Pi Foundation, is the National Organising Body of the UK Bebras Challenge. The University’s support for the UK section of this international competition includes hosting events for the top achieving students.

A total of 260,814 children took part in the 2019 challenge. Nationally, the top achievers are invited to take part in the Oxford Computing Challenge in March, with the prospect of making it through to the finals held at Hertford College.

Congratulations to the Third and Fourth Form Shrewsbury School pupils who took part in the Intermediate and Senior Challenges respectively. Six Third Formers and four Fourth Formers have now been invited to take part in the Oxford Computing Challenge (OCC) next term.
