The 2021 Bebras Challenge
The Irish Computer Society (ICS) will be hosting its annual Bebras® Computing Challenge again this year between 8th - 26th November 2021. Bebras is an international initiative aiming to promote computer science and computational thinking to students of all ages (6-18 years) by allowing them to solve interactive tasks online. Run in Ireland by the Irish Computer Society, the aim of Bebras is to get students all over the world excited about computing. The Challenge is held over three weeks, and Irish students will be participating in the same challenge that’s being undertaken by thousands of students in more than 50 countries around the world.
This is the ninth years that Ireland has taken part in the Bebras challenge, after it was first introduced in Ireland by Michael A. Cotter in 2012. Last year more than 9,500 students participated in the challenge. If you know any colleagues or peers who may be interested in registering their class or school to take part in the Bebras challenge it is not too late to sign up here: www.bebras.techweek.ie
