Students across Years 7,8,9,11 and 13 recently took part in the Bebras challenge and have been placed in the top 10% in the country!
The Bebras challenges are made of a set of short problems called Bebras tasks and 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 knowledge but instead require logical thinking. The aim is to solve as many as you can in the allotted time.
There were 270,000 entries nationally. Of the 288 entries from Theale Green School, 150x achieved a Merit/Distinction or Best in school (by age group) which is a fantastic achievement!
The top achieving students in the four oldest age groups have been invited to attend a final round and celebration in the new year. This will take place in Hertford College and the Department of Computer Science at Oxford University. The top 10% of students in these age groups have also been invited to enter the TCS Oxford Computing Challenge in March, eight of which are pupils at Theale Green.
Well done to all of the amazing Theale Green School students on their fantastic achievements! All certificates will be handed out in the celebration assembly at the end of term.
