Energy and enthusiasm at the Years 8 and 9 coding camp
Published on: 5 May 2016
Over the weekend, twelve Christ Church boys and nine St Hilda’s girls travelled to Kooringal for three days of coding fun. The students worked through a series of programming challenges in order to prepare for the upcoming Australian Informatics Olympiad in September.
The students added to their informatics problem solving tool-kit while establishing a network of collaborative coders between Christ Church and St Hilda’s. Teacher in Charge of Informatics, Mr Jan Honnens, said he was very impressed by the students’ enthusiasm, coding ability and their eagerness to collaborate in a team.
“The intersection of Mathematics and Computer Science is a treasure trove of stimulating and relevant problems for bubbling minds. The teachers on the camp were constantly blown away by how the little snippets of code can lead to such an extraordinary display of creativity and passion.”
