Bebras India

 
 

welcome

Bebras (www.bebras.org) is an international student Computational Thinking Challenge organised in over 40 countries and designed to get students all over the world excited about computing. The challenge is a great way to learn about computational thinking and problem solving skills. And the best part? It’s free!

The Bebras challenges are made of a set of short problems called Bebras tasks. The tasks are fun, engaging and based on problems that Computer Scientists enjoy solving. The tasks require logical thinking and can be solved without prior knowledge of computational thinking. ​The aim is to solve as many as you can in the allotted time.

The 2018 Bebras India Challenge was held from 19th – 30th November for age groups 8-18 in English, Gujarati, Marathi and Telugu and was conducted online/offline under the supervision of the teachers. 2018 Bebras India Challenge had participation of 1,37,081 students from 380 schools across 12 states of India.

Mrudula Athale, Vikhe Patil school, Pune, Maharashtra: English
Our all students are taking challenge but very surprising and happy realisation is that some students who never complete any subject work or are very very casual about studies were also giving test with full concentration and gave the feed back that the test was very interesting.

Rajesh Dalvi, Om Shanti English medium school, Morbi, Gujarat (English and Gujarati): Today we received our Bebras India exams results. Thank you so much for allowing us to participate in same. Our children were very happy with the results. Please let me know next exam or any other online exams for school children

Srividya Subramanium, Cochin Refineries school, Kochi, Kerala: English
Kids are super excited sir! Even the hyper active and distracted ones are meticulously sitting with concentration. Now they are asking... When is the next test! Even though it is really hectic to have 250+ students doing the test in school within a week, the happiness and satisfaction on their faces drives our spirit and encourages us to do more.

Congratulations for reaching out to so many schools and changing the mindset and methodology of teaching computer science in schools..  Bebras Challenge was an excellent initiative to test aptitude, logical thinking and reasoning. My students have enjoyed it thoroughly. Each one of them have shown a lot of interest to solve the puzzles and I really saw them trying... Well Bebras was the talk of school last week.
