BEBRAS CHALLENGE

10-Mar-2016 

Some Year 5 & 6 GLPS students have been working through Bebras questions this week to understand how to break computer science problems up and solve them.. all aimed towards moving them on to coding and being all-round good thinkers. Year 3 & 4 students will have a go at it next week.

Bebras is a challenge to promote Computational Thinking and computer science among primary and secondary students (years 3-12). The purpose is to expose students to computer science and logic concepts without the need for prior digital technology/coding knowledge.

Students have been given the opportunity to engage with some of the Bebras questions this week because getting students to understand how to break computer science problems up and solve them is the pivotal element in moving them on to coding – as well as just being all-round good for their thinking. A number of students in Years 5-6 have given it a go this week with Years 3-4 students given an opportunity next week.
If your child is interested to be involved, please let me know so I can include them in a the challenge which will take place on Tuesday 22 March.

More information can be found on the Bebras website. Students can try these questions at home as well.
