The Bebras Computing Challenge promotes problem solving skills and Informatics concepts including the ability to break down complex tasks into simpler components, algorithm design, pattern recognition, pattern generalisation and abstraction. It is organised in over 40 countries and designed to get students all over the world excited about computing.
This year, there were more than 250,000 participants, with 7085 registrations in the Elite category this year. This is the top level category in the Bebras challenge, and all our 31 AS Level Computer Science took part.
