The NCSS Challenge
is a programming competition open to all school students and teachers. The NCSS Challenge is unlike any other programming competition. They teach you how to program as we go along, rather than expecting you to be an expert already. If you’re a seasoned coder, we have something for you too – the problems range from relatively simple to mind-bendingly hard.
The competition teaches students to code in Python 3.6. Python is an easy to learn scripting language used for many different purposes such as web applications and scientific research. Companies like Google, Facebook and Reddit all use Python in their infrastructure and web services.
Students from Grade 4-6 participated in the challenge with the following students recieving High Distinctions.
Brian L, Lucas W, Michael Q, Patrick Z, Sohni P. Shaheer N
