This year we will, once again, be participating in the Bebras Challenge.
Bebras introduces computational thinking and computer science to students from 8-18 years by allowing them to solve interactive tasks online.
These tasks consist of fun and engaging short questions that can be answered without prior knowledge of computational thinking but can uncover a student’s aptitude for the discipline.
It teaches participants that computational thinking is an integral part of solving problems in daily life and aims to get students excited about computing.
Bebras is an international competition that takes place in the same two weeks in November in 44 countries. You can schedule the challenge to take place during any school day between the 5th and 16th.
The top achieving students across all age groups will be invited to attend a final round in Maynooth University during Tech Week 2019.
