The COVID situation prevented us from presenting the prizes in a formal ceremony, and the photo opportunities. We are grateful for the students, parents and teacher who bear with us.

A competition to support STEM in schools

Since 2013, the BCS Bedford Branch has been running a competition to cultivate young computing leaders. Participating in the Cyber Challenge is a positive way to fulfil the STEM Gatsby benchmarks like linking curriculum learning to careers, encounters with employers and employees, encounters with further and higher education.

The competition is open to all Year 5 to Year 10 students from schools in the areas of Bedford Borough, Central Bedfordshire, Luton Borough, Milton Keynes and Buckinghamshire.

The Branch expects to officially launch the new competition in February 2022.
