The Bebras® Computing Challenge introduces computational thinking to students, by allowing them to solve interactive tasks online. It is run in over 30 countries and takes place every November.
The tasks can be answered without prior knowledge about computational thinking or information and communication technology. The aim of Bebras is to get students all over the world excited about computing
Why not try the Bebras Mini Challenge as to see what it's all about!
Every November Bebras stages its international Computer Challenge to motivate students to problem-solve based on informatics concepts such as algorithms and programs, sequential and concurrent paths, data structures, state modeling, and data flow.
In 2015 over 1,300,000 students from 35 countries participated in the Bebras Computer Challenge. Also in 2015 Bebras won the Informatics Europe Best Practices in Education Award.
As an introduction, the organisation provides the Bebras Mini-Challenge which enables students to solve a sample Informatics-based task and compete against time. The online contest is open to all ages of learners.
5717 students took part in the 1st round of the Irish Bebras Competition on the 6th to 17th November 2017. The Bebras Final will be held on the 21st of April 2018 at Maynooth University. To find our more check out the Bebras Ireland website
