About Us

Bebras (www.bebras.org) is an international student Computational Thinking Challenge organised in over 60 countries and designed to get students all over the world excited about computing. The challenge is a great way to learn about computational thinking and problem solving skills.

The Bebras challenges are made of a set of short problems called Bebras tasks. The tasks are fun, engaging and based on problems that Computer Scientists enjoy solving. The tasks require logical thinking and can be solved without prior knowledge of computational thinking. The aim is to solve as many as you can in the allotted time.

Bebras India Challenge (www.bebrasindia.org) is organized by ACM India’s CSpathshala initiative (www.cspathshala.org). ACM India/CSpathshala’s goal is to make it possible so that every child in India learns Computer Science.
