Primary students recently worked in teams to take on the computational thinking Bebras Challenge 2020.

What is the Bebras Australia Challenge?

Bebras is an international student Computational Thinking Challenge and Bebras Australia is run by CSIRO Education and Outreach through the Digital Careers program.

The goal is to promote computational thinking to students in a way that highlights student ability beyond Science or Maths skills.

“Our students worked extremely well in small groups from Years 4 to 6 in completing the set challenges.

“The discussion generated in trying to solve each problem was inspirational to witness as an educator. The children expressed how much fun they had in completing the challenge.” David Smith Primary Digital Innovator
