BEBRAS Computational Challenge

5/12/2018
BEBRAS is an international student Computational Thinking Challenge and is run by CSIRO Education and Outreach through the Digital Careers program. Students compete against other children from North America, Europe and Asia. The goal is to promote computational thinking to students in a way that highlights student ability beyond Science or Maths skills.
