Fun facts about the Bebras Computational Thinking Challenge
- The Bebras Australia Computational Thinking Challenge started in Australia in 2014 through the CSIRO Education & Outreach program, Digital Careers. However, the Bebras Challenge has a long and world-wide history.
- Founded in 2004 by Professor Valentina Dagiene from University of Vilnius in Lithuania, the first Bebras challenge involved 3470 students from 146 schools.
- The Bebras Challenge has grown so much that there are now almost 60 countries, with more than 1.6 million students, participating last year alone!
- In case you’re wondering, Bebras is the Lithuanian word for ‘beaver’.
- The International Bebras Community chose this name because beavers endeavour for perfection in their everyday activities. They are known to be hard working and intelligent, so it’s only right that the challenge be named after them.
