JUNIOR SCHOOL BEBRAS CARDS
Who are they for?
One set is FREE to each of the first 400 UK Primary Schools who agree to use them and then fill in a short survey.
To accompany and support the UK Bebras challenge, we are producing some Bebras cards for use in the classroom with children aged 7-11 (years 3-6/P3-P6). These cards are adapted from those developed and trialled in Lithuania. Each set consists of 48 A5 laminated cards in a box, each with a different computational thinking challenge. The intention is that children can work in groups to solve the puzzles on the cards and this will help them to develop logical and algorithmic thinking skills as well as introduce them to some new computer science concepts.
Google are funding the distribution of 400 FREE sets of cards to primary schools in September. The only catch to this great offer is:
a. You need to use them with some children!
b. You need to fill in a short survey in the last two weeks of November telling us what you thought of them
If you are interested in this then please fill in the form here with the full postal address of your school. Only the first 400 schools to complete the form will receive a set and there can be only one set per school. Only schools in the UK are eligible.
