Blazers writing the Beaver Computing Contest

Last Thursday, seventy-nine grade 9 and 10 students from Bayridge Secondary School participated in the Beaver Computing Challenge - an online contest hosted by the University of Waterloo with competitors from all over the world.  The folks at Waterloo say that our group was one of the largest groups to write at one time anywhere in the world!  A week later, the results are in and 24 students received certificates of distinction for finishing in the top 25% of the 7541 students in the WORLD who wrote.  In addition, of those 24 students, 10 were grade 9 students.  Amazing participation and results!
