NEWS / 18 January 2019

Six Stratford College students have been invited to participate in the National Final of the International Bebras Challenge on Computational Thinking in early May, hosted by the Department of Computer Science in Maynooth University. The Bebras Challenge involves students doing 15 online problem solving exercises in 45 minutes. 

Congratulations goes to Shane Healy, Mia Quirke, Finn Nankivell, Joshua Wynne, Alex Cooke and Ross Gaynor on reaching the National Bebras Finals!

In November last, during EU Codeweek, all 2nd and 3rd Year Computer Studies studies undertook the first round of the online Bebras Challenge. Primary and Secondary students from all over Ireland took part at the same time. From there, the Irish Computer Society who introduced the Bebras Challenge to Ireland in 2016, invited the students with the best results to compete in the National Finals 2019.

Try some problem solving challenges yourself!
