BEBRAS Challenge in St Clare’s

Students from 1st year to 4th year took part in the 2023 Bebras Computing Challenge today.  

The Bebras Computational Thinking Challenge introduces computational thinking and computer science to participants, 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 Bebras Computational Thinking Challenge teaches participants that computational thinking is an integral part of solving problems in daily life.  

Students participate in the same challenge that is being undertaken by thousands of students in more than 60 countries around the world. 

This year while the majority of students participated in the challenge through English, some students completed the challenge in Ukrainian. All students will receive a certificate of achievement.   

The top achieving students in all age groups will be invited to attend a final round in Maynooth University in 2024 as part of Tech week.
