UK Brebas Frog Jump Challenge

The Bebras Computing Challenge introduces computational thinking to students. 
It is organised in over 40 countries and designed to get students all over the world excited about computing.

The challenge exposes children to a new subject and way of thinking. To develop their computational thinking skills, the children in computer club have been trying out some of the challenges published by UK Brebas including The Frog Jump Challenge. Why not have a go at solving on of these challenges yourself?

Frog Jump

A frog gets exercise by jumping around a pond. It jumps from lily pad to lily pad in the sequence shown in the picture below. It starts at the lily pad labelled S. It ends on the lily pad as shown (i.e., the frog shown has finished jumping). Each black dot marks a lily pad on which the frog has landed.

The legend below labels each of the 8 possible directions of a jump with an integer from 0 to 7.
