The Oxford Women in Computer Science (OxWoCS) Challenge club is a new initiative created by the Oxford Women in Computer Science society alongside the Oxford Department of Computer Science. It aims to create a community of young women with a passion for mathematics and its applications. The club consists of monthly mathematical and Computer Science related problem sheets which will be sent out for students to solve. These problems are designed to stretch and challenge students. At the end of each month, students will take part in an online discussion lead by an Oxford Computer Science student, to discuss the problems including solutions and techniques. Students who are successful in gaining a place on the programme commit to attending each of the six live sessions: Nov 2021- May 2022. We anticipate that the problem sheet to take about 6-8 hours of work, each month, in your free time, before the live session. Sessions designed to support you in applying to your chosen universities will also form part of the programme. Applications are open and close on October 29 2021 .
