Computational and Algorithmic Thinking Competition

Earlier this year, nine students from Coonabarabran High School sat the online Computational and Algorithmic Thinking Competition.

The Computational and Algorithmic Thinking (CAT) competition is a one-hour problem-solving competition which seeks to identify computer programming potential—something which students might not normally have an opportunity to demonstrate. This provides a unique opportunity to expose students to this exciting new discipline.

The results are just to hand and certificates were presented on assembly on Monday 25 July. Students receiving Participation Certificates were Nils Thomas, Tristan Thomas, Jackson Sulter, James Whalan and George Bell. Credit certificates to Bethany Freeman, Lachlan Eshman, Benton Earnest, Johst Bowmaker and Harry Williams. Charlie Knight has again qualified for a Distinction Certificate which shows he has a genuine aptitude towards problem solving strategies.
