Bebras: annual computer competition now also for younger children

Bebras

The Cyprus Computer Society (CCS) announces the Bebras 20-21 Pancyprian atudent competition in Informatics & Computational Thinking which will take place online in December.

After 10 years of successful organisation for high school students, this year for the first time the competition also addresses primary school students!

The Bebras competition is held on the basis of the respective global competition with the aim of developing students’ computational, analytical, critical and algorithmic thinking.

Especially this year, when many educational activities were cancelled, Bebras is a covid-free action to develop problem solving skills from a young age. Computational thinking includes the skills that scientists of all specialties apply to solve problems using computers. Students have the opportunity to expand their boundaries and handle problems which are not taught in the classroom, in a different, interesting, and playful way.

Participation is free and the first round will take place online on December 11-23. The competition will be open for ten days and students will be able to run it either from school or from home.

Information and registration of students, parents and teachers until December 9 at www.bebras.org.cy
