Year 9 Information Technology students Chloe, Quyenie, Caitlin and Antigony are national winners in the Year 9&10 category of the Bebras Computational Thinking Challenge!
The competition required students to compete online in small teams and solve a series of algorithmic problems. The girls took out the first place honour against 2300 entrants, two thirds of whom were male, and are ranked in the top 4.5% of students in their category in Australia.
Of the coding aspects of the Bebras Challenge, Antigony remarked: "I enjoy coding because it challenges your mind in a completely different way. You know where to begin and where to end, but the fun is filling in the gaps." Lowther’s Information Technology and Computing programs are engaging students in coding, games programming, 3D world programming and printing, and robotics.
