Bebras is an international initiative aiming to promote Informatics (Computer Science, or Computing) and computational thinking among school students at all ages. Computational thinking involves using a set of problem-solving skills and techniques that software engineers use to write programs and apps. The Bebras challenge promotes problem solving skills and Informatics concepts including the ability to break down complex tasks into simpler components, algorithm design, pattern recognition, pattern generalization and abstraction.
The second week of November is declared as World-Wide BEBRAS week for solving tasks. Starting in 2018, KodeKiddo participated in this competition to allow our students to improve their capabilities in computational thinking.
The challenges were delivered in KodeKiddo classes between Nov 5-16, 2018.
The kiddos did very well!! Check our blog for complete overview.
- On average in most of the categories, our results are higher than the average from overall California and US participants.
- 15 kiddos got “Best in School” achievement with 11 of them got the perfect score of 200.
- Total of 331 KodeKiddo students participated in this competition from more than 10 KodeKiddo centers.
