Bebras Computational Thinking Challenge

This week, a group of Year 5 and 6 students competed in the second round of CSIRO’s Digital Careers: Bebras Australia Challenge. Bebras is an international initiative aimed at promoting Informatics and Computational Thinking amongst students.

In Australia, the Bebras Challenge takes place in March and August-September each year. Students have 45 minutes to complete the Bebras Challenge. Each challenge comprises of 15 questions where students work towards an accumulative score resulting in certificates and possible inclusion on an international honour roll. Some students worked on the Challenge individually and others in groups. Collaboration is a key aspect of Computational Thinking and can be of benefit to results.

As the second round closes this weekend, we hope to share the students’ result early next term. CLICK HERE if you’re interested in trying out some of the questions from previous Bebras Challenges.
