Lyndon School students take part in the worldwide BEBRAS Computing Challenge
This month, the majority of KS3 classes at Lyndon School took part in the BEBRAS Computing Challenge. Lyndon had six students who achieved in the top 10% of 300,000 national participants and a large amount of those who took part from the school did better than the national average.
The BEBRAS Computing Challenge introduces computational thinking to students. It is organised in over 50 countries and designed to get students all over the world excited about computing. Each participant answers questions that focus on computational and logical thinking and the challenges are promoted by Oxford University.
The six students who achieved in the top 10% nationally can now go on to participate in the online Oxford University Computing Challenge which takes place in the week beginning the 7th of February 2022.
Mr Abid Butt, Principal said:
“ I am so proud of all the students that took part in the BEBRAS Computing Challenge, they did amazingly well and it’s fantastic that some will be going through to the Oxford University Computing Challenge next year.
Here at Lyndon School, we are committed to offering students a first-class educational experience which includes activities that challenge them and stretch their ambition. We want to make sure that students leave us equipped to successfully tackle the challenges of the 21st century. “
