The Computational and Algorithmic Thinking Competition is run by the Australian Mathematics Trust to promote logical and algorithmic thinking. This competition is a one-hour problem-solving competition which seeks to identify computer programming potential, although no prior programming experience is necessary. Students who do well in the CAT competition are encouraged to enter the Australian Informatics Olympiad (AIO) which is an individual computer programming competition held later in the year. Students who excel in the AIO are then selected to represent Australia in the International Informatics Olympiad.
This year’s CAT competition was completed by 16,000 students from 450 schools.
