Students earn top spots in international coding competition

Written by SMC Administrator. Posted in Featured News, News, Timeline

St Mary’s College students achieved high scores in Grok Learning’s Web.Comp 2018, a coding competition which teaches new coders from around the world how to design their own websites.

Students competed for five weeks alongside more than 6,000 students from across Australia and the world, using code to design websites of increasing sophistication and complexity. The twist? Many of them had never written a line of code before!

In the final week of the competition, students used their new coding skills and creativity to produce their own website designs. The designs were submitted into a design tournament, where other competitors, along with the public, voted on the best designs in head-to-head rounds.

Congratulations to the following students:

Jessica Bremner (Year 8), who achieved a High Distinction in the beginner’s section.
Lucy Eade (Year 5), who achieved a Perfect Score in the intermediate section.
