Several Winstanley students recently participated in the Bebras Computing Challenge, supported in the UK by Oxford University, and placed within the top 10% of the country.

The online challenge, organised over 50 countries, presents a series of tasks that introduce computational thinking to students; requiring them to think and perform like a Computer Scientist.

The challenge first began in Lithuania in 2004 and has since grown into a worldwide event. The UK first participated in 2013, and student entries have grown from a humble 21,000 to more than half a million in the last 2 years. That means our students have placed in the top 50,000 out of 500,000 students in the UK – wow!

Winstanley College are committed to encouraging students to participate in enriching experiences and are delighted that so many students were successful in this highly acclaimed STEM challenge.
