Well done to all our S2 BECS pupils and S3 to S6 Computing Science pupils who took part in the Beaver Challenge last week!
The Beaver Challenge is a competition aimed at raising awareness of Computer Science in a fun and rewarding way. 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. Examples of these techniques would include the ability to break down complex tasks into simpler components, algorithm design, pattern recognition, pattern generalisation and abstraction.
This year over 50,000 students in the UK and Europe took part in the competition – results should be available in approximately 10 days.
