Bebras Australia Computational Thinking Challenge

Next round: Sept 1-12, 2014

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.

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.

Working TogetherWork 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.
