Bebras Computational Thinking Challenge

March 14, 2016 - March 25, 2016

What is the Bebras Australia
Computational Thinking Challenge?

Bebras is an international initiative whose goal is to promote computational thinking for teachers and students (ages 8-17 / school years 3-12). Bebras is aligned with and supports the new Australian Digital Technologies Curriculum. Bebras is run by NICTA under the  Digital Careers program, funded by the Australian Government as represented by the Department of Communications.

Everyone can do it

The challenges are made of a set of short questions called Bebras tasks and are delivered via the cloud. The tasks can be answered without prior knowledge about computational thinking, but are clearly related to computational thinking concepts.

Work alone or in teams

To solve the tasks, students are required to think in and about information, discrete structures, computation, data processing, and algorithmic concepts. Each Bebras task can both demonstrate an aspect of computational thinking and test the talent of the participant.
