CSpathshala Bebras India Computational Thinking Challenge

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. And the best part? It’s free!

The 2018 Bebras India Challenge was held from 19th – 30th November for age groups 8-18. It was offered in English, Gujarati, Marathi and Telugu. Results and certificates will be available in the first week of January.


Students, to take part, ask your teacher to register. Registrations will remain open during the challenge.

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.

Age groups

There are five separate challenges this year for five age groups.
Aryabhata: standards 3 and 4
