Beaver Computational Thinking Competition is a prestigious informatics competition with nearly 2.8 million participants from more than 60 countries in 2020. Beaver has been endorsed by Ministry of Education and there were more than 4,000 participants representing over 300 schools from all over Malaysia in 2020.

Objective

Assists students’ understanding of Teknologi Maklumat dan Komunikasi (TMK), Asas Sains Komputer (ASK) and Sains Komputer (SK) subjects through problem solving.

Facilitates a deeper understanding of information technology.

Encourage students’ use of information technologies in their learning activities more enthusiastically.

Supports the initiatives from Ministry of Education in integrating computational thinking and computer science into the classrooms for the standardized KSSR and KSSM.

Solves problems through computational thinking using computer-based solutions.

Cultivates students’ creativity, information culture, algorithmic and computational thinking.

Engage children in information technologies, computers, and their application from the very beginning at school.

Prepares the students with a good foundation in preparing for future digital economy jobs.

Reveal to students the advantage of information technologies that are helpful in learning various subjects.

Who Should Participate?

  • All school students who would like to increase their computational thinking skills in problem solving.
  • With just the ability to think logically as well as having patience, students are more than equipped to join this competition.
  • No prior background in computer science is needed.
