Congratulations to Joshua, Mia, Ross, Alex, Shane and Finn who all reached the Bebras Computational Thinking National Finals held in Maynooth University on 11th May. The finals kicked off this year's Tech Week.

Approximately 6000 students competed in the Bebras Challenge during EU Code Week in November 2018 and of those, approximately a small percentage of those students were invited to compete in the National Finals.

The Bebras Challenge involves a 45 minute online test of 15 problems to solve. The problems are all grounded in computer science and computational thinking - breaking problems down into smaller parts. Try them yourself

Well done everyone, a very proud achievement for Stratford.
