Autumn 2018 Results

The Apex Challenge prizes are given out to the top three teams in both the Explorers and Network age groups, but we also thought it would be interesting to see how the leaderboards would look when split into all-male, all-female and mixed gender teams.

These leaderboards show which teams ranked the highest in each of those categories. Congratulations to all our leaderboard winners!
