The National Computer Science School Challenge is an online programming competition run by the Grok Learning section of the University of Sydney. The Challenge lasted for five weeks and students competed in one of three streams (Beginners, Intermediate or Advanced) learning the Python programming language.
During Term 3 this year, 56 students from Years 5 to 12 participated in the NCSS Challenge. Particularly notable were four students who each achieved perfect scores in their respective competitions. They were:
- Ananya Khatry (Year 5) – Beginners
- Anika Mulemane (Year 5) – Beginners
- Genevieve Gough Year 6) – Beginners
- Olivia Dowling (Year 7) – Beginners
These four students are to be highly commended for their flawless performances in solving highly challenging programming problems.
Congratulations to all students who participated in the NCSS Challenge this year.
