Informatics: Challenging, Inspirational and Relevant Coding

Summary

At Christ Church Grammar School we have over the last few years built a culture of enjoyment and excellence in informatics based on lunchtime sessions, Informatics Coding Camps and a year-round involvement in computer programming competitions.
Informatics, a mix of computer programming and mathematical thinking, has become a key motivator for many of our student and has helped them unleash their potential in both Computer Science and Mathematics.
In this session we will have a look at our Informatics Club model and discuss a solution (in Python) to a problem from each of the eight computer programming competitions that we use.
We tirelessly encourage our student to be active learners and attempt the problems before we share a solution with them. Similarly, for this session we offer you the opportunity to have a go at the problems before we give away the solutions! The problems are available at http://tinyurl.com/8problems
Please bring a laptop with Python installed (e.g. IDLE from python.org)
