Competition

NCSS Challenge (Intermediate)

Bands: Years 9-10

Duration: 5 weeks, online from 27 July 2020

The Intermediate stream of the NCSS Challenge is for students who have completed the Beginners stream and want to learn more.

It introduces data structures, files and more ways to use functions.

This year we're recommending students only do Intermediate if they've done Beginners or an equivalent Python course before.
