Bebras introduces computational thinking and informatics to students. The contest is organised in over 40 countries and it is made of a set of questions that can be answered without prior knowledge about computer science but are clearly related to computer science concepts. To solve those questions, students are required to think in and about information, discrete structures, computation, data processing and algorithmic concepts.

Last April 2016 with the help from Infocomm Development Authority (IDA), a total of 645 students from 15 Singapore schools participated in Bebras Trial Challenge 2016: 152 students from Primary 5 & 6, 332 from Secondary 1 & 2, 151 from Secondary 3 & 4, and 10 Junior College students.

It is in partnership with NUS School of Computing and National Olympiad in Informatics (NOI). Top performers in Bebras Challenge will be trained by lecturers from NUS School of Computing for NOI. More details will be released together with Bebras 2017 results.
