The Beaver Computing Challenge (BCC) introduces computer science to students. It is designed to get students with little or no previous experience excited about computing.
Students in Grade 9 or 10.
Any 45 minute period during the week of November 12, 2012.
|The contest is written online in schools and supervised by teachers.
More information for supervising teachers is available.
The BCC is a problem solving contest with a focus on computational and logical thinking. Questions are inspired by topics in computer science but only require comfort with concepts found in mathematics curriculum common to all provinces. Connections to Computer Science are described in the solutions to all past contests.
Schools that have not registered for previous contests are encouraged to participate.
The BCC exposes students to a new subject and way of thinking so there isn't a need to prepare for the contest. However, you can get a feel for the style of the problems by viewing past contests and these sample questions.
We emphasize participation but also recognize top-performing students.
