Oxford University Computing Challenge
THS Computer Science students who achieved in the top 10% of the country for the Bebras challenge took part in the Oxford University Computing Challenge on 18 January.
Students undertook the Bebras challenge back in November - a national problem-solving computing challenge designed to get students excited about computing. Entrants that score within the top 10% in the country are then invited to take part in the Oxford University Computing Challenge.
This year we had a record 30 entries for the OUCC and although the challenges were difficult, all students worked tirelessly to attempt the questions. Well done to all students who took part - we will find out the results in a couple of weeks.
Mr Dimond, Leader of Computing, said: "The Oxford University Computing Challenge is an invitation event which aims to encourage students who have achieved a top 10% score in the UK Bebras Challenge to develop their skills further and produce programmed solutions to computational thinking problems. The students did brilliantly and we're looking forward to finding out the results in a few weeks."
