The Bebras® Computing Challenge introduces computational thinking to students, by allowing them to solve interactive tasks online. It is run in over 50 countries and takes place every November. The tasks can be answered without prior knowledge about computational thinking or information and communication technology. The aim of Bebras is to get students all over the world excited about computing.
For the November 2020 challenge we will be allowing students take the challenge from home, for this year only. The teacher must still register the students and we strongly recommend that a teacher or coordinator is available while they participate in case they run into any issues.
Why not try the Bebras Challenge as to see what its all about!
You can schedule your test any time during the Challenge period (2-13th November 2020).
The top achieving students in all age groups will be invited to attend a final round in Maynooth University in 2021 as part of Tech Week. More information will be available closer to the event.
There are 5 categories with different levels of difficulties
The problems come in three levels of difficulty: Easy, Medium and Hard. Each level of difficulty consists of 5 questions.
You can find a problem's difficulty in the problem overview before you click on it. The difficulty of a problem determines how it will be scored. The scoring rules are as follows:
|Easy (A)||+6 points||0 points||0 points|
|Medium (B)||+9 points||-2 points||0 points|
|Hard (C)||+12 points||-4 points||0 points|
