The Computational Thinking Challenge at Oxford University

13th Feb 2020

Congratulations to Rebekah Fearnhead who was invited to the Department of Computer Science at the University of Oxford on 8 February as a finalist in a UK-wide competition, 'The UK Bebras Computational Thinking Challenge'.

Reaching the final of the Elite, 16-18 age category, is an impressive achievement, as 7,085 students entered the first round for this age group. Rebekah was among the top 52 highest achieving students invited to the final round and was presented with her finalist’s certificate at a prize-giving ceremony at Hertford College.

The 'UK Bebras Computational Thinking Challenge' is designed to get students excited about computing and computational thinking. It is a problem-solving contest with questions inspired by computer science topics.

In the first round, held at their own schools, students had to solve as many problems as possible in the allotted time and there are six age categories. The highest scoring students from the four oldest age groups (Elite, Seniors, Intermediate, and Juniors) were then invited to the Department of Computer Science at Oxford for the finals which took place over two weekends in January and February.
