Wind Speed Conversions and the Beaufort Scale


Before going to sea, any sailor should check the marine weather forecast to check on different aspects of the weather including the direction and strength of the wind (wind speed). The wind speed can be measured using different units such

Circle Geometry Functions


In this challenge we will create a library of functions to apply the different formulas based on the geometry of circles. For each function, you will need to design the algorithm using either Pseudo-code or a flowchart, implement the function

Tutankhamun’s Papyrus

The mask of Tutankhamun

The historical era of ancient Egypt spreads over more than 30 centuries during which different pharaoh’s ruled Egypt. One of the most famous pharaoh, Tutankhamun commonly referred to as King Tut ruled from 1334 to 1325 BC. He was the

Egyptian Numerals Conversions


In this blog post we will investigate how Egyptians used to write numbers (Ancient Egypt civilisation) and we will use an algorithm to convert decimal numbers into Egyptians numerals. By completing this challenge, we will compare two different numerical notations:

UPC Barcodes


A barcode is a visual representation of data that can easily be read by an optical barcode scanner/reader. Barcodes are used to facilitate and speed up the identification of different types of products. Using a barcode reader speed up the

Perseverance’s Parachute Secret Message Encoder


On February 18, 2020, NASA successfully landed its rover “Perseverance” on planet Mars. To slow down its descent the rover deployed a parachute. The whole operation was filmed and relayed on the Internet. You can watch the official NASA video

Mars Perseverance Rover


On February 18, 2020, NASA’s rover called “Perseverance” successfully landed on Mars. The mission of this high-tech 6-wheel rover is to explore the surrounding areas, analyse the Martian soil on different locations, take high definition pictures as well as audio

Wanted Poster (CSS Task)


For this challenge we will create a Wanted Poster using a range of HTML and CSS skills. CSS Selectors & CSS Properties In order to complete this challenge, you need a good understanding of how CSS selectors work. You can

Binary Search Tree Implementation


Binary Search Trees are an effective solution to store data in a computer program and perform a binary search. The benefits of using a BST (Binary Search Tree) data structure is that data can be added to the tree as

Lossless Compression: Huffman Coding Algorithm


The Huffman Coding algorithm is used to implement lossless compression. For the purpose of this blog post, we will investigate how this algorithm can be implemented to encode/compress textual information. The principle of this algorithm is to replace each character
