Four students reach Bebras National Finals and two prizewinners!

NEWS / 8 May 2023

Hearty congratulations to 2nd year students Christopher, Ugo and Nino (12-14 years age category) and to 5th Year student Phoenix (16-18 years age category) who were invited to the Bebras Computational Thinking National Finals. Nino came 1st and Phoenix came 3rd in their respective categories. A phenomenal result!

Hosted by Maynooth University and the Irish Computer Society, the Bebras challenge involves answering 15 problem solving questions in 45 minutes. There were 60 students in each age category. Approximately 8000 students entered the preliminary round of the competition in November 2022. Being invited to the Finals is a major achievement in itself!
