Perfect scores for Bebras Challenge!

Six Avondale College students have gained perfect scores in this year's Bebras Challenge!

The nationwide challenge tests students' logic and computational skills through different types of fun and challenging problems, and this year 33 Avondale College students took part.

Computational thinking involves using a set of problem-solving skills that software engineers use to write programs and apps. Students can break these skills down in smaller and more familiar components like pattern recognition, algorithm design, data analysis or abstraction.

Coming first in New Zealand with a perfect score of 180/180 were Year 10 students Daanish Khan and Thavanesh Thevar in the 12-14 age group; and Hriday Bansal, Max McColloch, Rudra Patel, and Sayeed Salman in the 14-16 age group.

It's a fantastic result, says Mr Vijay Prasad, HOD of Avondale College's Innovation Programme.

"Last year was the first time we entered this challenge, and we had only 15 students participate, with one student awarded the highest marks in New Zealand. This year, we have six achieving a perfect score, with Max McCulloch winning it back-to-back in different age groups!"
