Bebras Computational Thinking Challenge

We constantly strive to engage students in activities and competitions that enable them to use and upgrade necessary life skills. Computational thinking is one of those skills that students of this era need to pursue and develop. Walnut students participated in the Bebras India Challenge to test their computational thinking and problem solving skills. In 2020, 2.5 million students took the challenge across 56 countries. We’re happy to announce that our students emerged rankers in this challenge. Read more here…
