The Beaver Computational Thinking Competition is an online competition that introduces computer science concepts and logical problem solving to students.
The Beaver Computational Thinking Competition is a part of the international Bebras effort. The first Bebras competition was organised in Lithuania in 2004 and the word ‘Bebras’ means beaver in Lithuanian. Beaver is selected as the mascot due to its industriousness and natural engineering capabilities.
Bebras aims to promote interest in Information Technology, Informatics, and Computational Thinking to teachers and pupils of all ages, as well as to the public at large.
As of 2018, Bebras competitions have been held in 61 countries with more than 1 million student participants.The competition is organised locally by each participating country every year.
The Beaver Computational Thinking in Malaysia is organized by Beaver Informatics Malaysia Secretariat and supported by Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDeC), an agency under the Ministry of Communications and Multimedia Malaysia.
