Puzzle Day­čžę

What is Puzzle Day?

A one-day live event for secondary school students with the opportunity to work together in teams and solve logic-developing puzzles. The format of the event is adapted from Puzzle Day, a community initiative of Harvard University’s CS50 computer science course, to get young people interested in computer science.

What is the target audience?

Secondary school students (grades 10-12), who are divided into teams of 2-3 members.

What are the goals?

  • develop problem solving and creative thinking;
  • create the impression that computer science is more about problem solving than just programming;
  • foster a sense of community and student engagement with the sciences;
  • develop teamwork, communication skills, and cooperation among the students, while also encouraging collective problem-solving and creativity.

What is the process?

  1. Students are given ~10 logic problems to complete in-person, with a time limit of three hours.
  2. Each problem has one word as the answer.
  3. Internet or any other resource can be used.
  4. Teams may not share answers or other useful information related to the problem with each other.
  5. The team with the most correct answers wins.
