The Perse Coding Team Challenge
Do you enjoy writing code to solve problems?
The Perse Coding Team Challenge will test your programming prowess as you battle it out against teams from across the UK for the Braben Cup.
The competition is open to UK pupils in Years 7-11 (P7-S4 in Scotland) and is free to enter.
International schools may enter the competition for the purpose of certificate awards, but only schools in the UK will be eligible for the cup/prize money award.
