[Animation image changes to show the beaver pushing four coloured dices into four holes in the floor surface and then sitting up and a tick appears on the left of the beaver]

Engage your students in problem solving and computational thinking. 

[Animation image changes to show a beehive in a tree with a honey pipe running from the hive to a honeypot and then the beaver can be seen turning taps along the pipe to allow the honeypot to fill]

The Bebras challenge is a free online challenge aimed at students from Years 3 to 12 running for 45 to 60 minutes right from your classroom.

[Animation image shows a tick appearing next to the honeypot and then the animation image changes to show the beaver doing a star puzzle and turning on light bulbs on the puzzle]

Bebras develops and assesses student’s problem solving and computational thinking skills,

highly sought after in the digital careers of the future.

[Animation image changes to show the beaver hopping onto numbered buttons in a 3 x 3 pattern and the image shows a tick appearing and then the image shows the beaver climbing a tree]

Running twice a year the Bebras challenge is Australian curriculum aligned and a great way to engage students in collaborative, creative and critical thinking in any classroom.
