The Bebras Challenge

Pleckgate’s Year 7,8,9 pupils have been problem solving in a worldwide competition.

The Bebras Challenge is a computational thinking challenge which three million pupils in 60 countries take part in. It’s designed to get pupils all over the world excited about computing.

Pupils solve as many problems as they can, focused on computational and logical thinking, in 40 minutes and collect points dependent on how tough the questions are.

Pupils can progress through to the Oxford University Computing Challenge which takes place in January.

Head of Computer Science Mrs Coulthard said: “It’s an online competition and it’s fantastic our pupils can test themselves against pupils from all over the world.

“It was a tough competition but our pupils seemed to enjoy trying to solve the problems.

“We want to continue to encourage a love of computing here at Pleckgate and additional challenges like this, on top of the curriculum are brilliant for our pupils.”
