What is Bebras?
Bebras is an international initiative aiming to promote Informatics (Computer Science, or Computing) and computational thinking among school students at all ages. Participants are usually supervised by teachers who may integrate the Bebras challenge in their teaching activities. The challenge is performed at schools using computers or mobile devices.
Originally it involves a set of problem-solving skills that software engineers use to write programs and apps. You can break these skills down in smaller and more familiar components like pattern recognition, algorithm design, data analysis or abstraction. Computational thinking is used in more areas than just software, so it is very useful to get acquainted. Want to know more?Visit Computational Thinking.
