Students have recently been taking part in the BEBRAS Computing Challenge, this is organised in over 40 countries and is designed to get students all over the world excited about computing.
The competition involves solving problems using computational thinking skills. Computational thinking involves using a set of problem-solving skills and techniques that software engineers use to write programs and apps.
The top achieving students in the four oldest age groups are 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 University of Oxford.
The top 10% of students in the country are invited to take part in the TCS Oxford Computing Challenge, which aims to help talented computational thinkers move on to providing programmed solutions to problems. This year the competition is sponsored by University of Oxford and the Raspberry Pi Foundation.
Last year, Bexhill College had 11 Computer Science & Further Maths students qualify for the TCS Oxford Computing Challenge, and 1 student who went to the Oxford University final and impressively achieved 3rd place against students from all over the country.
We can't wait to find out how the students have got on this year.
