Six FCC students have achieved awards in the Computational and Algorithmic Thinking (CAT) competition held last term on Tuesday 22 March. Ten students sat the CAT, a one-hour problem-solving competition run by the Australian Mathematics Trust which seeks to identify computer programming potential. It challenges students with problems that require creative problem solving and algorithmic thinking skills. Such skills are increasingly important in our digitally connected world, and are becoming more emphasised in schools due to the new Digital Technologies outcomes in the Australian and Victorian Curricula. All competitors performed well and the following students achieved awards:
