As part of Tech Week 2018, some Carysfort NS students participated in the Irish Bebras Challenge. Bebras introduces computational thinking to students by allowing them to solve interactive tasks online. It is run in over 40 countries and takes place every November.
This year 5717 Irish students participated in the first round competition and two of Ms. Cotter’s students, Beatrice and Maria, have won a place in the Irish Bebras Final which will take place on 21st April 2018. Only 118 students from the Republic of Ireland and 15 from Northern Ireland have earned a place in the final.
We wish Beatrice and Maria every success in the event and commend them on this fantastic achievement.
