Please note that there are two week gaps between Challenges 3 and 4 and between Challenges 6 and 7 to accommodate half term and to give you all a rest before the final run in! We know that not all schools have the same dates, and it is impossible to accommodate them all, we hope you understand. It is possible for Team Captains to submit their solutions from anywhere with internet access so they should still be able to take part if their school is not open, and the Team Captain can always delegate that role (using the team page) if they are going to be away. There is also a two week gap between Challenge 7 and Challenge 8, but that is for entirely different reasons – Challenge 7 will be hard, and you might need it.
