Resources to kick-start your new Partnership
Bebras Partnerships aim to inspire students into STEM pathways by demonstrating how computational thinking skills are used in everyday workplaces. For some STEM professionals, the connection between your work and these skills will be obvious. However, we recognise that some of you may appreciate practical ideas to get started.
Please note that the suggested resources are optional and can be adapted to your individual needs.
Partnership how-to guides
Use these guides as frameworks to support you through essential stages of your partnership.
Partnership suggested activities
Introduce yourself as a STEM Professional to students. Highlight how real-world projects require the use of various computational thinking skills with our Bebras Mega Challenge activity and accompanying Lesson Plan. Use our fun Mini Activities to engage students' computational thinking skills in groups without the use of a computer.

Bebras 365 activities and resources
Bebras 365 are previous Bebras challenges. STEM Professionals may benefit from reviewing previous questions and our Bebras Resources to learn more about computational thinking skills, the types of questions asked in the Bebras Challenge, and how learning happens in the classroom.
Adapt these Bebras resources to create your own Partnership activity. For example, use Bebras Unplugged or the Bebras Mini Challenges to focus on a particular skill - such as a skill most frequently used by the STEM professional - and relate this skill to use in your industry. Or use the Bebras Question Creation Template to translate a work task (done by the Stem Professional as part of their role) into a Bebras question.
