Rabobank BankBattleSince 2005, many local banks at Rabobank have been organizing a BankBattle every year for pupils in grades 7 and 8 of the primary school. This is a quiz where you have to answer certain questions / assignments through the internet. At the end of all questions / assignments, the safe must still be cracked. Only then can the final assignment be made. Whoever has completed the final assignment the quickest has won. Pupils must work well together during this 'competition'. A certain tactic and strategy is very useful here.
Who can participateThis battle is especially for pupils of groups 7 and 8 of the upper secondary school. The teachers must absolutely not interfere with the battle! For more information about BankBattle, you can consult the site www.bankbattle.nl (only available around BankBattle).
StartThe participating classes / schools can start with the BankBattle between 8:30 AM and 10 AM. So they have the choice of the start time themselves. If only before 10 a.m. As soon as starting, the clock starts.
ExpensiveThe website on which the assignments are listed and on which the answers must ultimately be filled in, is available during the BankBattle until 12.30.
Which media may be usedIn some cases it may happen that a student knows the answer to a certain question based on his / her accumulated knowledge. In addition, there will undoubtedly be questions for which an answer must be sought. Searching this can be done in different ways. This is allowed via the internet, but this is not absolutely necessary. For example, use can also be made of: a road map, atlas, calculator or a reference book in book form.
Type of assignmentsThe students receive various types of practical assignments or questions on various topics. In this way the knowledge of groups 7 and 8 is tested and they can show how much knowledge they have of computers. The questions have to do with:
- the subjects in school
In the BankBattle of 2016, for example, the students had to use a drawing with five rows of slippers to indicate which two rows were mirror images of each other. They were also asked a question from which they had to use clues to find out what kind of profession a particular person had.
