IGS Primary Students excel in the 2021 Bebras Challenge

In Term 1 students in Years 4 to 6 participated in the Bebras Challenge, a challenge the junior school has been entering since 2017.

Bebras is an International Student Computational Thinking Challenge 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.

Primary Digital Innovator David Smith said, “The 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 terrific to observe as an educator”.
