If you'd rather read than watch...

If you are a teacher with a class to test you’ll want to download the challenge description as a printable PDF file and print out a copy for each student. 

Attempt the challenge before watching the solution video

If you have difficulties completing the challenge (or if you want to use our challenges as a learning resource in themselves) we’ve create a professional narrated 26-minute challenge solution video tutorial that fully explains each step needed to complete this challenge.  You should only watch the solution video if you have difficulty completing the challenge.  

If you do need to work through the challenge solution video tutorial try the challenge again afterwards and keep trying until you can complete it without referring to the video.
